Feed the Needy Relaunch

What’s changed? 

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me.” (Mt 25:35)

Is God placing in your heart a desire to feed the hungry? Are you a Boy Scout, Girl Scout, KofC, and looking for service hours?  Do you want to introduce your family to the beauty of feeding the poor?

It is with great joy and excitement that to announce that starting Sunday, September 20th from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm, St. Peter’s Church will resume it’s Feed the Needy program!!

What’s Changed?

  • St. Peter’s will no longer be serving meals on the 2nd week of every month. Instead, St. Peter’s will now serve a Sunday dinner on the 3rd Sunday of every month! Why the change you may be asking? First, this will eliminate the problems we were running into with serving meals at the same time our St. Peter’s School was in session. Second, we feel St. Peter’s can provide a great service to our Mansfield community! Currently, there are no Sunday meals being provided for our homeless community! It is our great hope and prayer that by serving a Sunday dinner, our St. Peter’s Feed the Needy program can attract more needy elderly, families, and children!
  • At this time, meals will not be served in the church basement. Instead, prepackaged meals will be made available for drive-through or pickup only.
  • Apart from Mr. Dick Renie, Mr. Tim Markel, and myself who will be available to direct volunteers, we are asking for a new set of volunteers each and every Sunday! This means we are asking you to pray about either signing up individually or as a group. 10 volunteer positions are available. Volunteers will be asked to arrive after the 11:30 pm Mass (~12:30 pm) and stay until 5:30 pm.

COVID-19! Of course, precautions will be taken! All volunteers will be required to wear facemasks and practice social distancing. Cooks will follow policies of St. Pete’s cafeteria school, wearing gloves and following all necessary policies.  Please contact Fr. Kevin at 419-460-5761 or email me to sign up for this beautiful ministry!

God be blessed!
