Don't forget your bag of nonperishable food items! On the 3rd Sunday of the month at all Masses we collect nonperishable food items for St. Martin food pantry, which is sponsored by their Men's Group. If you are unable to bring in a bag of groceries but would like to contribute, we invite you to write a check made out to "St. Martin Catholic Church," write "pantry" on the memo line and place it in the collection basket any time during the month. The Men's Group always has to buy more than we donate so all donations are greatly appreciated!
