Thanksgiving food drive Thank you!

Thanks to our entire Parish community, the Thanksgiving Food Drive to benefit the families of our sister parish, Our Lady of Angels, was a great success! Through your generosity, we were able to provide over 250 bags full of the makings of a traditional Thanksgiving meal, plus a gift card for a local store, so the families could purchase a turkey or other additional groceries. Everyone who came to the distribution event was served, as well as some who had indicated a need but could not attend. No one went away empty handed!

The Sister Parish Outreach Ministry appreciates the generosity of our Saint Gregory The Great parish community!


Thanksgiving food drive




November 17 - 18, 2018            During All morning Masses

We want to assure that the families of our sister parish, Our Lady of Angels, have the makings for a festive Thanksgiving meal. For many in our sister parish community, stressed budgets and financial challenges may make this joyful family holiday tradition impossible. Your support of our Thanksgiving Food Drive will help to bring the Thanksgiving holiday alive for many families in our sister parish community.

Please share some of your blessings:

  • Non-perishable, Non-expired, family sized canned or packaged foods such as yams, cranberry sauce, vegetables, fruit, soups/broth, stuffing mix, instant potatoes, gravy, desserts.
  • Grocery Gift Cards in $20 denominations for Walmart or Smart and Final. These two stores are conveniently located in our sister parish community. We want to give each family a store gift card so that they can purchase a turkey.
  • Checks can be made payable to St Gregory The Great Church, and note “SPOM-Thanksgiving” in the memo line.

St Gregory the Great Parish has been most generous in assisting the people of our sister parish. Recently we have filled over 200 bags of food per year for Thanksgiving meals for families in the community. Thank you for your generosity for the families of our sister parish!
