How long have you been a parishioner? My family and I have been parishioners since the early 2000s. Back when we celebrated Mass at Curtsinger Elementary School. (ugh, so old).

This past weekend the Catholic Charities Mobile Food Pantry in the St. Francis of Assisi parking lot was able to provide meals to 214 families. The food was provided by Catholic Charities Dallas and the North Texas Food Bank.
There were 12 volunteers that were handing out food to the countless cars that arrived on Saturday. Father Rudy and Deacon Alex were also on-site supporting the mission. The volunteers bagged and boxed 3,500 pounds of food, which included food items such as apples, potatoes, grains, juice, and chicken.
When parishioner, Mark Morrow attended Confession two weeks ago he told St. Francis staff he wanted to help and that's exactly what he did. Owner of his own Catering company, My House Catering, and Event Planning, Morrow was able to team up with SVdP and our Food Pantry Volunteers and provide 80 prepared meals to those who showed up to Saturday's Mobile Food Pantry. Morrow is planning to provide 200 - 300 prepared meals for the next mobile food pantry event.
