Thank you for your continuing generosity to St. Mark’s Center for Community Renewal’s food pantry. Our third Christ Church drop-off food collection on July 19th was a resounding success. Although it was a steamy day, the turn-out from the parish was wonderful! A special thank you to those who helped deliver the food and get the word out: Erna Sottile, Vicki Schmelzer, Linda Malanowski, Fr. Michael and Christine Stockhausen. Please watch the announcements for the next food drive later this summer!
