Good Samaritan Sunday – 1st Sunday of the Month
In his famous parable (Luke 10), Jesus lifts up the compassionate actions of a Samaritan toward a needy person for his disciples to follow. Our Service & Justice Ministry wants to highlight two ways we can follow Jesus’ command to “go and do likewise” on the first Sunday of each month.
1. Our loose cash offering (and designated offerings) on the first Sunday has for several years gone to the Gabriel Fund, a ministry started by Gloria Dei and other Central Hillside parishes and managed through CHUM, for direct assistance to the needy.
2. Canned food items can be brought to help replenish the CHUM Food Shelf, and brought forward as part of our offering.
