Here at St.E’s we take great pride on our giving back to the community. During the course of the year we help residents of Mt.Olive and Succasunna put food on the table, including all the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner. Parishioners generously donate non perishable food to our little pantry week after week, all year long.
In February we participate in Souper Bowl Sunday, by supporting the Youth Ministry and Confirmation candidates with this nationwide effort to feed the hungry. Collections in support of St. E’s Food Pantry will be held at the Shop Rite stores in Flanders and Succasunna, and a bucket drop will be held at the church after all Masses.
Also in February, we will support the YM when we head to Newark for the second year, in cooperation with Bridges Outreach, to provide food and necessities to the homeless. The Stitching Ministry also supports this effort by making scarves and hats to be distributed to those in need.
Throughout the year we have many other opportunities to reach out to help our neighbors, stay tuned to find out how you can help!
