Clothing Donations to the Poor

Many parishioners have been generous in the response to the need for winter coats. Please note that the clothing depot at Saint Edward Food & Wellness Center is currently filled, and donations cannot be accepted unless cleared by Lori Porcaro or Father Ed. Unsolicited bags of clothes randomly dropped off at the Food Center or Parish Office will be given to Goodwill Industries or discarded. Recently someone attempted to drop off clothing at Holy Family Home that contained used men’s underwear. No clothing donations can be accepted there as the needs of the residents are met through Saint Edward Food & wellness Center. Your cooperation is appreciated.

A Prayer of Healing for Victims of Abuse

God of endless love, ever caring, ever strong, always present, always just: You gave your only Son to save us by his blood on the cross. Gentle Jesus, shepherd of peace, join to your own suffering the pain of all who have been hurt in body, mind, and spirit by those who betrayed the trust placed in them. Hear the cries of our brothers and sisters who have been gravely harmed, and the cries of those who love them. Soothe their restless hearts with hope, steady their shaken spirits with faith. Grant them justice for their cause, enlightened by your truth. Holy Spirit, comforter of hearts, heal your people’s wounds and transform brokenness into wholeness. Grant us the courage and wisdom, humility and grace, to act with justice. Breathe wisdom into our prayers and labors. Grant that all harmed by abuse may find peace in justice. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen
