LOVE IN OUR WORKS - BULLETIN FEBRUARY 25, 2024

We will have our monthly non-perishable food collection for our food pantry on March 2-3. Please do not bring your donations until the collection weekend of March 2-3. Thanks!

Please call the food pantry line directly at 708-289-0406 to enroll. You will need to provide ID and proof of residency in Our Lady of the Ridge - St. Linus parish boundaries. Pantry is on the second Saturday every month. For financial assistance call 708-289-4180.

Are you looking for ways to experience God? Members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society invite you to share in their ministry. Volunteering with St. Vincent de Paul is a wonderful way to serve God through people in need, and when we see Christ in our friends in need we experience His grace. Please contact Patti Meslar at Meslar5@att.net if interested.

I can honestly say if you spend an hour or two with us, we guarantee you won’t regret it. Stop by for a visit and see our volunteers at work at our Food Pantry, second Saturday of the month between 7 am and 10 am at Our Lady of the Ridge Gym.
