St. Andrew Parish Packs 21,600 Meals to Send to the Philippines

FCC News Desk

On November 3rd the St. Andrew Parish family worked together to pack 21,600 meals to send to the Philippines.

It was a wonderful intergenerational service day with the pastor, Father Marek Masnicki, parochial vicar, Father Richard Breton, and Deacon, Michael Puscas, all working alongside parishioners from small children to the elderly. 

Parishioners were also joined by Father Brian Maxwell. Under the direction of Harvest Pack, this took only about one hour from start to finish. There were parishioners from nearly all ministries and all grades working side by side.

The Philippines was chosen because of a program called Transform, which feeds the people who are in the Transform program while teaching them a skill to later provide for themselves and their families and also introduces them to a relationship with Jesus Christ.
