Love ought to show itself in deeds over and above words. ~St Ignatius de Loyola
Hello to all. I hope everyone is doing well. It’s time for our 2017 EASTER Feed the Homeless event.
Last Wednesday, March 1 was Ash Wednesday; this marks the beginning of Lent. During this season of Lent let us be reminded why Christ died on the cross. One of the communal disciplines of Lent is alms giving, this is our project. Lenten fasting is another discipline. Fasting is not just refraining or cutting out: fasting is action. Fasting is rolling up our sleeves and doing the Gospel work of justice and mercy. Let us feed the hungry as our action to our fasting. We have to share Christ’s suffering and those of the homeless by charity. We are all capable to sharing and caring. Any act of charity is greatly appreciated, be it monetary, in kinds, your time and prayers so we can continue doing our Labor of Love mission to feed the hungry.
Love if not shared is not love at all. Please share your Love for Christ through our poor brethren.
Sharing with the prayer I borrowed from the Jesuit Prayers:
Holy God, as Lent begins,
may I carry out in word and in deed
all that you ask and invite. Amen.
Just an FYI, the rollover money from the 2016 Christmas events is $2,274.61. We need more to feed 1000 people.
Please check out our blog as Baby, my sister in law, had posted more pictures and comments. Please share our blog to your families and friends and invite them to join us in serving the poor this Easter.
On this event we are going to feed 1000 people.
Here is the list of our Easter care bag :
Ham and cheese bolillo sandwich

Please join us and invite your families and friends in celebrating Christ’s resurrection through our poor brothers and sisters. I look forward to the 2017 Easter Event and I pray for your continuing support of our mission to feed the hungry. We are in need of volunteers for the preparation and distribution of our care bags.
Serving the Lord through our less fortunate brethren is awesome experience; please encourage your children and grandchildren to participate.
Thank you, take care and God bless.
Love from all of us,
Tony, Shirley, Kiko, Rhonda and Midori
