In November and December, our traditional “Sunday of Service” will expand to a Season of Service* that will assist families lacking basic food items. We invite church school members and all parishioners to participate in a “Reverse Advent Calendar” to aid our own Nourishing Bethesda Coalition Family Food Distribution. This project is a simple, but meaningful way to benefit families in need and to keep their needs before you each day.
Here is what you’ll do:
- Get a sturdy box. (Finally, a use for those Amazon boxes!!) Consider decorating the box by wrapping it with festive paper, covering it with stickers, or allowing your child to draw pictures on it.
- Tape a copy of the attached food list to the outside of the box.
- Each day in December, place the listed food item in the box. As you do so, thank God for what you have and say a prayer for the families who will receive the food items.
