Although this past year has once again had its challenges from time to time, having to move the food pantry from St. Joseph’s Church to the old rectory and having to say goodbye to many of our loved ones who passed away this past year, we also have a lot to be thankful for. The Leicester Food pantry continues to grow under the leadership of our director Jane Ring and her crew of dedicated volunteers. Together they have the pantry up and ready again in their new location for Leicester patrons to shop in house.
The thrift shop is growing and continues to do so under the leadership of Donna Jyringi, along with the old and new volunteers who have joined the team making it a fun and exciting experience. We welcome all our regular patrons and our new ones who are coming from far and near with their donations and supporting our thrift shop.
Our Religious Ed Program is growing under the direction of Michelle Herbert and the many parents who volunteer each week.
And lastly for all those who have and continue to help support the parish with their time, talents and donations throughout the year and for all the committees that serve our parish, we extend our heartfelt gratitude and look forward to an even more exciting 2023!
