SAINT PASCAL PARISH SOCIETY OF ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SAINT PASCAL CONFERENCE Having celebrated Christmas, we now celebrate the feast of the Holy Family and reflect on how much our families are like that of Joseph, Mary and Jesus. We worship, we pray, we work, we worry, we celebrate the important days in our family’s life, and we face hardships. Because of all this, we love and care for each other as family, whether it be our household or our parish family. We are as dependent on each other as we are on God’s mercy and compassion. This Christmas many of our parish families prayed grace over a delicious and nutritious meal supplied by your love and generosity. You reminded them that they are not alone and are loved. You made their Christmas special. Also, next weekend we will collect food to replenish our parish pantry. Please make it your mission during the year to bring at least one item of non-perishable food with you to Mass the first weekend of every month. We’re counting on you to keep the parish pantry supplied with enough food for all of those who come to our parish door in need of help. Help spread the word!
