Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry … (Matthew 25:37)
Blessed Sacrament Parish has two special collections each year to support our neighbour, the Marian Centre in the downtown Regina.
“Marian Centre provides meals and used clothing for men in need. We try to witness to a spirit of simplicity and poverty. But most of all, we try to offer friendship and warm hospitality to all who enter. There is no charge for meals, no question asked, no judgement made.”
This year Pope Francis launched the 2014 Caritas’ “One Human Family, Food for All” lenten campaign. The Pope gave his blessing and encouraged actions to bring an end to hunger.
On March 14, 2014 Fr. Barry, Pastor of Blessed Sacrament visited Doreen, Nancy, Charlie, Shaun and Hugo to deliver the parish lenten collection to help Marian Centre feed and cloth the men they serve.
