“For where two or three are gathered in my name,
I am there among them.”

– Matthew 18:20

Welcome back everyone! It has been so wonderful to see so many of your beautiful faces in person again! We kept community and kept faith and here we are, slowly, coming out on the other side of it all. I am so excited to inform you all that as we are able to gather together once again, we are officially starting up our monthly Loaves and Fishes runs!

As so many of us know, the pandemic has affected everyone’s lives so deeply, but none more so than those groups that were already marginalized pre-COVID. Please join us in reuniting with our brothers and sisters in Woonsocket on Saturday, July 24th. It will be a time filled with joy, as we catch up with old faces (and probably meet some new ones!).

Just a friendly reminder, if you can only sign up for a portion of a slot, do not let it deter you, any and all offerings are greatly appreciated! If you are new to the ministry, there are several ways to be involved, including donating items, helping prep and going on the run. If you’d like to come on the run but aren’t sure how to help, there will be experienced volunteers on hand to guide you. Hope you can join us!

For the run, prep work at St. Luke’s starts at 10 a.m. We will leave around 11:30 a.m. and return by 3 p.m.

We will all meet the food truck at 52 Clinton Street Woonsocket, RI. Please use this link for directions: https://goo.gl/maps/Apu4ZxohKF5XPwZV6.

If you would like to help with the clothing side of this ministry, we can always use you! Much of that work is done at different times during the month. Email Joyce Harvey at joyce836@gmail.com or Caroline Sparhawk at cdsparhawk@verizon.net if you are interested.

*At this time we will only be handing out socks, underwear and children’s clothing.

If you have questions, please contact Niki-Lynn Ziroli at nlynnziroli@gmail.com. Thank you for your continued support and dedication!

** WHERE TO LEAVE DONATIONS: For clothing and nonperishable items dropped off before the run date, please leave them in the church office or right outside the office. Please do NOT leave items in the preschool room. On the day of the run, leave items in the main lobby (clothing, nonperishables) or kitchen (perishable foods).
