Love ought to show itself in deeds over and above words. ~St Ignatius de Loyola
Let us NOT love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth….1John 3:18.
Dear LOL families and friends,
I hope everyone had a good summer. It’s time for our Christmas Feed the Homeless events again and I’m looking forward to seeing you all and meeting new friends.
Thank you Lord for allowing us to serve you through our less fortunate brethren. Congratulations and more power to us for keeping our mission stronger than ever. We continue to grow and provide one decent meal twice a year because of your generosity and kindness. What a blessing to all!!!
To our new friends, thank you for your support and we hope and pray that you will continue to serve our brethren in Christ.
Apologies for sending this email late as I was trying to find a place to serve our less fortunate brethren for the Winter Shelter-Feed the Homeless.
There is a change in the venue. Beginning this year, St Christopher Church is no longer hosting the Winter Shelter. The new venue will be at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Covina (address: 344 Workman St, Covina, CA 91723).
For this year’s Winter Shelter, Linda and I decided to pledge for 2 dinners and 1 breakfast. Please join us in serving the poor at the new venue. We urgently need volunteers to serve. Please see below the schedule of our events.
