A Thank You From OLS

January 11, 2022

Dear Father Marty and All of Our Lady of Mercy’s Families,

Thank you for your support of our efforts to meet the needs of our community. The generosity shown through the most recent Food Drive organized by the Our Lady of Mercy’s Holy Name Society to benefit the Our Lady of Sorrows Emergency Food Pantry will play a very important role in our ability to respond effectively to the needs of our families.

This year, our Emergency Food Pantry has been able to respond to over 1,100 requests for food assistance for over 600 families including 300 children.

The members of the Our Lady of Mercy Parish have been a constant support to us. So many generous donations of money, non -perishable food items and personal hygiene supplies have done much to help us meet the growing needs of our community families. This year’s Simbang Gabi gift has been overwhelming!

Our Social Concerns outreach program continues to thrive! Thanks to compassionate and caring persons like you and the OLM Family who help us continue to meet these emergency needs. You are a vital part of what God calls us to do, ” love one another”! We consider you an important part of our efforts.

May the 2022 be a time of blessing for you all.

Thank you for the help you have given.
