”St. Therese Parishioners Answer Call To Feed The Hungry”

The Sandwich Project

December 16, 2016

Intermountain Catholic reports on St. Therese parishioners and their members preparing sack lunches for The Road Home a couple times a month.

”The message from the two social justice conferences was clear, Neisen said: “We needed to act as church at the local parish level. We needed to serve our brothers and sisters within our own parish boundaries.” So now, every other Saturday morning, about 30 volunteers from Saint Therese of the Child Jesus Parish meet to prepare and deliver more than 300 sack lunches for the Road Home Family Shelter located in Midvale. The sack lunches include a ham-and-cheese sandwich, fresh carrots and a varied assortment of fruit, crackers, pretzels and candy.“ – Laura Vallejo, Intermountain Catholic, December 16, 2016
