A Special Invitation for All to Help Anyone Experiencing Financial Hardship, Food Insecurity, or Homelessness
The Diaconate community of the Diocese of Orange is once again organizing a joy-filled evening with amazing food, live music, family-friendly games, and fellowship for all those in our community who are experiencing financial hardship, food insecurity and/or homelessness. The event will help bring anyone in need together so they may experience the love and togetherness of the faith community and see that they are indeed the Treasure of the Church. This event is organized under the St. Lawrence Fund in collaboration with Catholic Charities.
The event is scheduled for August 12, 2022 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at our campus.
The Diaconate Office is asking for your help! Your support is needed to serve our community in the Diocese of Orange.
The Office of the Diaconate needs your gently used (or new) clothes and accessories! Clothing (in all sizes) for men, women and children is needed. Clean out those closets and drawers and bring your items (preferably on hangers) to the Diaconate Office by Friday, August 4.
Items collected will be given away at the “Treasure of the Church” Celebration Dinner on August 12.
Donate: We are seeking donations for the St. Lawrence Fund, managed by Catholic Charities of Orange County. Donations will be used to cover gifts for attendees, program expenses, and ongoing support for the poor in our community. If you would like to donate, go to this website Donate Online – Catholic Charities of Orange County (ccoc.org). Please select the St. Lawrence Fund option in the ‘I want to support:’ portion.
