Lexington Food Pantry has cancelled the usual November Door-to-Door food drive.  Our community continues to bless us with non-perishable foods and donations that allow us to continue our mission to feed our community, without putting anyone at risk.  There is a donation box in the parish hall, and at Lexington Finer Foods, True Value, as well as outside our pantry at 117 N. Vine.  Direct donations may be made to our Lexington Food Pantry account at Heartland Bank.  We are very grateful for the continued support of our community.  Thank You!

Christmas in Appalachia:  The 37 food pantries served each month by the Lexington-based Servants of our Lord Appalachian Ministry continues to address the hunger needs of thousands in SE Kentucky. In addition to the food we take each month, we plan to again serve the hundreds of children and teens through the 20 food pantries that also sponsor a Christian-based Christmas program where the gifts we send will be distributed. Much needed new coats, toys, hats & gloves, blankets & throws, new underwear & socks, as well as full-size hygiene products will be collected until mid-November. (Hotel size hygiene products will be used for homeless ministries.)

There will be a box at the church for donation of these items. If you would like to provide a monetary donation for us to shop for you, please send to Servants of Our Lord, Box 224, Lexington or pass on to Diana. If you have an Action Team card that you would like to use for this project, we (including the youth group), will shop for you. Please contact me at 309-275-3727 or rolandj2@frontier.com and I can provide the information needed to complete the request. Donations are needed by November 14 to give us time to shop and pack. Thanks!  Diana Frerichs (servantsofourlordministry.com or Facebook.com/servantsofourlord) Psalms 107:8-9
