Saturday Lunch Ministry: Sign Ups Now Open
There is an exciting new way to serve others the first Saturday of July and August. We will meet in the Parish Hall at 10:30 a.m. to make sandwiches and then pack lunches, which will include the sandwiches, fruit, a cookie, and a drink. After the lunches have been made, we will drive to St. James Park in downtown San Jose. The sandwiches will be distributed to everyone in the park.
When everyone has been served, part of the group will follow the light rail tracks into the center of the city and distribute sandwiches as they walk. The part of the group who remains in the park will clean up any litter. Even litter that isn’t part of the Holy Spirit lunches will be cleared away.
Click here to sign up. We have space for ten families to sign up. We are asking for a one to one ratio of adults to students as parents need to be with their child, especially during the distribution in St. James Park. Student participation will be limited to sixth grade and older. A donation of $10 will be asked from each family to cover the cost of food and supplies.
This new ministry was originally part of Faith Formation. It proved to be so popular that it will continue to be part of Faith Formation, but once a month, will be open to the parishioners as well. This will give the Confirmation Candidates from last year a chance to continue serving and will also open up another service opportunity for people in the parish. It is a very popular program, so signing up early is strongly advised.
