Prayer for Ecuador
God, you are in the midst of those who suffer. May all affected by the earthquake in Ecuador feel your healing presence.
God, you are in the hands of those who reach out. Help responders in their courageous work.
God, you are in the hearts of those compassionate ones whose prayers cry out for their families, whose prayers cry out for their neighbors, whose prayers cry out even for strangers. Bless and comfort those who mourn.
God, you are in the still small voice, the gentle whisper that follows. May our ears always hear, may our hearts always cry out for one another. May our hands always reach out to one another, and may we always walk like you walk in solidarity with those who suffer and so reflect your presence and comfort. Amen.

HOMELESS OUTREACH/HUNGER MINISTRY
In October 2015, our ministry began a continual food collection that benefits two charities, Hope Outreach and Catholic Charities. Hope Outreach is a real presence of Christ along the Mahoning Corridor. Catholic Charities provides food and emergency assistance to the hungry in Stark County. Both of these charities serve “the least of our brethren.”
We collect food at each mass on the weekends. All items need to be non-perishable including things like peanut butter, cereal, canned tuna and chicken, Vienna sausages, vegetables and pop top cans of beefaroni and spaghettio’s. We deliver the food on Tuesday. Our ministry group meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. For more information, call Rosemary Norton, 330-493-7443. Please remember to bring a food item to mass. Remember “just ONE feeds many.”
Serving at Hope Outreach
We have adopted the first and third Sundays of each month to serve at Hope Outreach. We don’t do any cooking but prepare items for serving the clients. This is physical work requiring standing, washing dishes and cleaning up. It requires about three hours of your time. If you can help us, please call Rosemary Norton, 330-493-7443.
Refuge of Hope
We also serve at Refuge of Hope on the third Thursday of each month from 5 to 7 p.m.
This is physical work requiring being on your feet for at least two hours and cleaning up. If you can help with this project, please contact Michael Fete at email@example.com or call 330-697-5716
Meals on Wheels
Our ministry has adopted a dedicated route in our parish area for Meals on Wheels. This requires a two-hour commitment once a month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. You must be able to get in and out of your car, climb stairs and deliver meals to clients. We currently have enough drivers, but if you are interested in being a substitute please contact, Chris McDonnell at 330-497-9089
