Love ought to show itself in deeds over and above words. St Ignatius Loyola
Hello LOL families and friends!!!!
Happy Sunday to all!!! It is 8 weeks to go for our 2 main events. For those who have donated and committed to joining us, THANK YOU for your generosity. Linda and I had our meeting and we have decided to serve about 900 of our hungry brethren, 700 in Downtown LA and ~200 at St Christopher Winter Shelter. The more we share and care, the more help and donation is needed. I hope you can help us by spreading the good news to your families and friends. Share with them your joy in your encounter of our Lord by serving the poor. Spread the true meaning of Christmas to them. The Real Christmas is the sharing of the Love of Christ to the least fortunate.
Share our blog to your friends and families. Show them the love you have given the poor over the years since you joined LOL. Tell them about who and what LOL is!!! Our actions speak about LOL. My company featured LOL in our Summer 2014 newsletter!
Linda and I decided to prepare pot roast for the St Christopher Winter Shelter. This will be served with dinner rolls, rice pilaf and cake for dessert.
In order for us to have the resources and ability to continue with our mission for both Easter and Christmas, your participation is greatly desired and appreciated. Please contact me if you wish to participate in any way with our mission by filling up our Contact form on the Contact Us page.
For those who want to donate in kinds (we need 700 of each kind), here is the list of what we need:
