MASS FROM THE CATHEDRAL
40 CANS FOR 40 DAYS REPORT
 
Lent_40 Cans.jpg

This is a Knights of Columbus charity program that connects traditional Lenten almsgiving with the nutritional needs of poor families in our community. The idea is simple: a straight forward one-can (or non-perishable item) per-day donation during Lent inspired by Christ’s 40 days of fasting in the desert.

The Supreme Council offers financial rebates to councils that donate food or money.  They will refund $100 for every $500 donated, or for every 1,000 pounds of food that a council contributes to a parish food pantry, community food bank or soup kitchen.

The Knights of Columbus and The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul thank you, our parishioners of Immaculate Conception Church ,for your  generosity during the 40 cans for 40 Days collection.  $240 and 275 pounds of food have been delivered to the SSVP Food Pantry on Murray Street.
