- Calls to Parishioners
Beginning Monday, March 30, 2020, in order to maintain contact with our parishioners, our staff and a few volunteers will be calling the 1600 of our parishioners who are 65 years and older. Our Faith Formation and Evangelization staff will be calling all of our faith formation families. These are not solicitation calls. We are calling to touch base and see how you are doing and assuring you of our prayers. It will also be an opportunity for anyone to identify any special needs with which we can help. As you might guess, this will take some time to complete. When we complete these calls, we will check in on those parishioners who are under 65. It will be a good opportunity to reaffirm our bond in Christ with one another as members of Our Lady of the Fields. Please answer our calls.
- Donations for the Needy
Food donations for those in need will still be accepted. Please place your donations of casseroles, sandwiches, lunch bags and other items in the coolers or baskets on the table outside of the rear kitchen door at the back of the building (near the pavilion). See details below: Our casserole ministry for Our Daily Bread continues in this time of pandemic. Our Daily Bread continues to serve a hot grab-and-go meal to the poor in Baltimore City and provides a grab-and-go lunch bag on weekends. Our Daily Bread needs casseroles, PB&J sandwiches, granola bars, and other lunch bag items.
Beginning Friday, April 10, we will deliver casseroles and sandwiches to Our Daily Bread every other Friday. Casseroles and sandwiches may be placed in the cooler outside the kitchen’s rear door on those Fridays by 11:30 am. Please try to bring your donations on Friday mornings (if possible) so that the perishable items are not left out.
St. Vincent de Paul Church in Baltimore is not able to host our Friday night dinner ministry during this time of pandemic. Our Breaking Bread With The Hungry ministry is now working with the Franciscan Center in Baltimore to assist the Center’s efforts to provide a hot meal to their clients. For this Friday, we are collecting pop-top canned goods. All donations that have been given for our Friday Night meal at St. Vincent de Paul Church are now directed to the Franciscan Center. Please bring these items to the back door of the kitchen.
