How Do I?

Share-A-Meal

 

Saint Anne's Share-A-Meal program offers parishioners the opportunity to reach out and help persons in need by preparing a meal for them.  A simple act, cooking dinner for someone who is not able to do so, but one that offers a great message of support.  Parishioners who participate in Share-A-Meal offer to prepare a meal on an occasional basis, perhaps once a month, depending upon their availability.

Those families who receive these meals are truly grateful.  More than food alone, the message being delivered is that there are parishioners who care and are willing to give of themselves in reaching out to help.

Share-a-Meal volunteers and some meal recpients recently gathered to attend an evening liturgy together and met for hospitality afterward.  It was a wonderful opportunity to connect with fellow volunteers and those who are served.  The smiles and stories were wonderful to see and hear.  To see pictures from our Lenten Mass and Meeting held on March 18, 2014, please click here.

For more information about how you can help with Share-A-Meal, please call Parish Social Ministry at (516) 352-5904 or e-mail lindaleone@stannesgc.org.

 

Share a Meal Jr.

As part of Saint Anne's School Service Initiative, Saint Anne’s 8th grade students prepare meals for parishioners going through a difficult time in their lives. They also write notes to the parishioners and deliver the meals personally. Under the guidance and direction of Vivian Flood, many 8th grade students over the years have learned how to prepare delicious meals but more importantly, have come to know various parishioners who are so grateful for their efforts.
