Michelle Knight, Social Justice Outreach Minister
Hours for Emergency Assistance:
Monday - Friday, 9 AM - 4 PM
Each Sunday, donations of canned goods and non-perishable items are collected during Mass, stocking our parish food pantry, which provides close to 500 bags of food each month to our neighbors in need. We also share parishioners' generosity with the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). Contents of our food bags include canned vegetables, soup, canned fruit, cereal, meat or fish, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, beans (bulk bags of both stretch our resources), and, occasionally, dessert. In addition, clients can choose to receive instant corn flour (i.e. Maseca) and/or vegetable oil.
