Thanksgiving – Adopt-A-Family

Help Make a Difference for Thanksgiving

The Christian Service Commission of our parish is again offering you several   options to help families or individuals in our community enjoy a special meal on Thanksgiving Day. Here are some ways you may help:

  • You may “adopt a family” and provide their Thanksgiving meal, which must be delivered to the Food Bank in Bound Brook on Friday, November 17 or Saturday, November 18.


  • You may purchase a gift certificate to a local food store, which you may bring to the table in the Narthex on the weekend of November 11/12. Or you may place the gift certificates in the collection baskets on the weekend of November 18th/19th.


  • You may bring in some selected food items on November 18th/19th for Thanksgiving from a list that will be available at the signup table.


  • If anyone in the parish knows of a family or individual in the community who could use a Thanksgiving food basket, please call the church office and alert the parish staff. All calls will be kept in the strictest confidence.


A table will be set up in the Narthex at all masses on November 11th/12th.

Please stop by and sign up to help.


Volunteers Needed

 Volunteers are needed to assist members of the Commission for Christian Service with loading and delivering food items collected for Thanksgiving to the Somerset County Food Bank and to SHIP on Monday morning, November 20th.

If you can help with any of the above tasks, please call Greg or Cathy Bielat at 908-722-0067.

Diocesan Disaster Relief Collection

In the wake of the recent hurricanes that devastated Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, Florida, Louisiana and Texas, and the deadly earthquakes in Mexico, Bishop Checchio has asked that the diocesan-wide Disaster Relief Collection, originally intended to close September 30, be extended to support the relief and recovery efforts in the affected communities.

You may donate online at or write a check made payable to “Diocese of Metuchen” with “Disaster Relief” in the memo line and mail to the diocese.

Please give as generously as your means allow, to help our brothers and sisters who are most in need at this time. The Diocese will accept donations through Thanksgiving Day, November 23. All monies collected will be used to assist victims of these recent natural disasters, working with local Catholic relief and recovery agencies in the affected regions. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who have already contributed. Please continue to pray for all hurricane and earthquake victims, especially for the deceased and for families who have lost a loved one.
