Thanksgiving Food Baskets
As in past years, this year the Samaritan Center is organizing a Thanksgiving food basket program for needy families in our area. In the past the Knights have generously given of their time and talent to make this program a success and make the holiday a very special day of Thanksgiving for those who are less fortunate. I am asking for assistance to help with sign ups for parishioner donations of food baskets after each Mass on Sat and Sunday October  18 & 19 at both our lady of Mercy and St. Thomas More. If you attend any of the masses on those days please let me know and ill get sign up material to you. This material consists of sign up sheets and a flyer suggesting contents of baskets. In addition, if parishioners do not have time to shop then they could also write a check to the Samaritan Center and we would be happy to do the shopping. An announcement will be in the Church Bulletin this weekend about this.

Baskets that are donated will be dropped off at Our Lady of Mercy parish hall the morning of November 22 and distributed to needy families that afternoon as well. I am also asking if there are Knights who can be available on Sat. Nov. 22nd for receiving and distribution of baskets.

Thank you so much and God Bless you and your family."
Peter C. Campanelli, Psy.D.

Petri in June of 1966.

Our Council is named for The Messiah, Jesus Christ. Our members serve the Parish of Saint Thomas More which consists of Saint Thomas More Church in Manalapan, NJ, and Our Lady of Mercy Church in Englishtown, NJ.
