  The Saint Pio of Pietrelcina Meals for the Homeless Shelter        

                  The June Meal for the Homeless shelter will be 
                                    Tuesday, July 19, 2016

We still need your help in providing the following menu items:
Fried/ Baked Chicken, Baked Beans, Broccoli Salad, Tossed Salad,
Fresh Fruit, Cookies for dessert, and NO Caffeine Soda (2 liter size).

      * We are now serving dinner to a greater number of men and women
at the shelter- approximately 50.

Food must be cooked / baked (to be reheated at the shelter kitchen) and you are asked to have the food donations in disposable pans or dishes
  (it is sometimes difficult to make sure a favorite pan / dish is returned to the owner!). 

   Thank you for your continued support and generosity for those less
 fortunate and please  keep them in your prayers. Also keep in your prayers, our parishioners who prepare and serve the monthly dinner.
