LOVE IN OUR WORKS - BULLETIN MAY 22, 2022

In the Gospel today, Jesus says to us: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you.”

If you, or someone you know, are in need of the food pantry, 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 the Second Saturday every month. For financial assistance call 708-289-4180 at Our Lady of the Ridge.

In the month of May, through your gifts, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul brought the love and care of Jesus to the poor by providing food and assisting with utility and rent bills, etc. Thank you!

We reach out to all parishioners young and old to consider helping our St. Vincent de Paul Conference in our many activities.

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.
