Helping Those in Need11/04/2022
On the last Sunday of each month, Epiphany parishioners gather after the 11:00 Mass to make sandwiches and then fan out to share these meals with our brothers and sisters that we find in need in surrounding neighborhoods. These Hunger Sundays are organized by Kim Salvo ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and Epiphany’s Social Justice Ministry and afford us a regular opportunity to engage with our community in a very tangible way. Sandwich making is an excellent activity for families as the needed skills are spreading, assembling, and bagging. All sandwich supplies are provided.
The event is a fixture on the parish’s monthly calendar. Participants regularly include a cross section of parishioners – young adults, seniors, families with children – all are represented. Hunger Sunday is an especially nice opportunity for new parishioners to give their time and talents and better connect with our faith community. In less than an hour, 10-12 dozen sandwiches are made, assembled with a drink, a snack and other necessities, such as a pair of socks, and then brought out by parishioners for distribution.
A regular participant noted that contributing to Hunger Sundays was their “favorite parish activity as it was truly the Gospel in action”.
Join us on Sunday, December 18th, after the 11:00 Mass.
And again on 1/29
