6th Annual Haiti Food Drive - St. Matthew Catholic Church Charlotte NC
St. Matthew Catholic Church Charlotte. NC. Sunday July 27th 2008. A gym full of food shows the love of our church for the world.
The parishioners of St. Matthew again came together to help the poor. The 6th annual Haiti Food drive ran from June 28th through July 27th. Pledging to raise 100,000 pounds of food to help the ultra poor in Haiti, St Matthew was just shy of it's goal as of the morning mass. By the end of the day we had exceeded our goal. The food provided will help feed this mission of about 200 people for 4 months.
St Matthew Catholic Church , which is located in South Charlotte just off I-485 at Rea Road, is no stranger to helping the poor. A vibrant ministry, full of opportunities to serve God, has a place you can serve also. See their website for details www.stmatthewcatholic.org/
The beneficiary of this particular drive is the Missionaries of the Poor, one of my personal favorites. Viewers of EWTN are familiar with this Christlike ministry, feeding the poor and sick around the world. Fr Richard HoLung and Friends serve God in a mighty way and he personally invites you to join him in his work. You can contact him or make donations directly at www.missionariesofthepoor.org/index.htm
