Camillus Casserole Project
Thank you for your generosity and support of this important program. Camillus House’s Brother Bill recently wrote about how the simple act of reaching out and helping a neighbor in dire need brings a great sense of warmth and well-being. (Indeed, Pope Francis recently listed “give of yourself to others” as one of the 10 secrets to happiness!) With God’s grace and your prayers and support, we’ll be able to help Camillus serve all who turn to them in the coming months. Bless you for caring – and for sharing. Your compassion will provide real relief and critical hope to local individuals and families. The Brothers, who are now members of the Hospitaller Order of St. John of God, thank you for your continued support and steadfast commitment to nourish those who are hungry. And, they pray daily for you and your families.
All casseroles for the upcoming months must be brought to St. Louis Church during the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., or 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the dates listed on the attached Casserole Program Calendar. Someone from the ministry will be at the circular drive way both times to receive your frozen casserole. At the time of delivery, you need to check in with one of the committee members who are collecting casseroles, and make sure the committee member checks off your name. This assists us in keeping track of the contributors, and the likely numbers of persons we can feed each month. Remember, the casserole must be frozen and covered completely. This is VERY IMPORTANT. Please indicate the name of the casserole recipe on the lid of the casserole container (a black permanent marker works well before freezing). Please note cooling and freezing directions at the end of the Ziti recipe.
We also have attached for you a copy of the recipes and the months that they are to be prepared, as well as the new schedule of collection dates.
If you have any questions or comments, or know someone who is interested in joining this wonderful ministry, please call any of the committee members listed below. Thank you for your support and God Bless You.NOTE*** Please DO NOT bring your casseroles to St. Louis Church at the ANY OTHER TIMES… it creates problems all around… if you forget your casserole, keep the frozen casserole until the next drop off and bring BOTH at that time… Thank you.
