Annual Appeal -

We are living through extraordinary times While it may be easy to get discouraged — as Christians, we continue to be hopeful because we know that God always surrounds us with His love and grace.

This year’s Appeal theme “bound together in hope” is at the heart of what we believe – that we are one body in Christ connected through the Eucharist to offer hope and love to one another.

Food Pantry will be closed on Friday, November 27th for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

The Pantry does not give out Thanksgiving turkeys, instead clients are welcomed twice a month

January thru March.




This is certainly a season in which we especially feel the need to be thankful, and also to be generous! 

Hence, we ask you to consider the ongoing food insecurity

of our Food Pantry clients.

Many have limited kitchen capacity for preparing and storing large meals.  Consequently, the served holiday dinner and/or turkey and trimmings basket provided by groups such as Friends of the Poor, Family to Family, and United Neighborhood Centers is a wonderful gift. 

We applaud this valued community tradition, but also ask what 

St. Paul/St. Clare Parish can do. 

Rather than offering another turkey, we believe we can more effectively help alleviate hunger by distributing groceries to each family TWICE MONTHLY during the coldest weather months, January through March.  Obviously this is a costly initiative, made possible only if you continue the tradition of a $25 Thanksgiving pantry donation.





Prayer for Spiritual Communion

When participating in the Mass at home through media, consider offering this prayer attributed to St. Alphonsus Ligouri during Holy Communion: My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there, and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
