Food Donations to Local Charities
Non-perishable foods sought
We'd like to remind parishioners that we collect food at the back of the church at each of our weekend Masses that's donated to two local charitable programs. Items contributed at St. Leonhard's and Holy Cross Churches are provided to the Frankfurt community of the Missionaries of Charity (the order founded by Mother Teresa, now known as St. Teresa of Calcutta), while donations at St. Mary's Church are given to the Hofheimer/Hattersheimer Tafel food bank. Please give packaged foods that don't require refrigeration, such as pastas; cereals; sugar; flour; cooking oil; marmelades; cans/tins of fruits, vegetables, sauces, soups; and dried meats like salami. However, please don't donate outdated food items.
Note that during the Advent & Christmas seasons in 2022, there will be collections at Holy Cross to provide cash to the Missionaries of Charity.
