Brownbaggers Homeless Outreach

The Brownbaggers project serves the poor in NYC during the winter months. Since 2009 we have delivered thousands of lunches. Meeting monthly in the Parish Hall at 12:30pm, we assemble 100 brown bag lunches with food and clothing items donated by our volunteers. We then travel via subway to multiple Manhattan parks to distribute our lunches to those most in need, returning to Brooklyn by 3:30 pm. Dave Beaudry is the current director of our Brownbaggers Homeless Outreach Program.

Please RSVP now for Sunday, March 10

Children under the age of 18 must to be accompanied by an adult. Please wear comfortable shoes and have your metro card charged.

Twenty-five volunteers are needed for this event. RSVP to: davebeaudry@gmail.com

Please consider donating warm socks, hats or gloves into the  Brownbaggers Donation Box which will be located in the vestibule of the church after every Mass. Any donations received will be distributed at that month’s Brownbagger event.

Also, financial donations used to purchase food items can be made in the Parish rectory. Thank you for your support.

*Just a reminder that all adults must be VIRTUS trained to attend.

Remember the Poor

Please remember the poor today as you leave church by perhaps giving alms and placing a donation in one of our poor boxes. Everything collected is given to the Saint Vincent de Paul Society, which assists those in need of food or clothing.

The Journey, Cross & Crucifixion – March 10th

Presented at Saint Saviour Church on Sunday, March 10 at 3pm

The Journey, Cross and Crucifixion is a journey back through time. It is an opportunity to walk with Christ and become one with Him. For many who have shared the Journey it is almost as if it were happening now for the first time.

The music, narration, dialogue and poignant silences all add to the power of this prayerful mediation. To be part of the Journey, Cross, and Crucifixion is to experience the complete and utter frustration devastation of Mary, the frustration of Simon, the loneliness and desolation of John, Pilate’s struggle between justice and expediency and the excruciation pain and degradation Jesus suffered on the way to Calvary and His ultimate death on the Cross.

For the past 37 years, the members of CM Performing Arts Center, Creative Ministries have been presenting this powerful presentation to the churches and schools throughout Long Island, leading people of all ages in a powerful prayerful Lenten experience. The troupes are made up of volunteer actors, singers and musicians who use their gifts to bring the Passion Story to life.

*Good Will Offering
