Women, men and youth of our congregation participate in this outreach ministry to the local community in two principal ways.
Once a month, we prepare sandwiches, ditty bags (useful necessities), cookies and soup and take it to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in downtown Long Beach, California. Men’s clothing is also collected and taken to St. Luke’s. Our members assist St. Luke’s with their shower program for homeless persons once a month and serve the guests who come with food that we have prepared, and give out clothing and small necessities. This ministry takes place the first weekend of the month – food preparation on Friday and the ministry at St. Luke’s on Saturday morning.
Parishioners donate “shelf stable” foods which are stocked in the St. Gregory’s food pantry. This ministry serves a number of individuals and families who need food. The linked file contains more information about this important outreach program as well as a shopping list which details the specific kinds and sizes of food that the Food Bank distributes. Our food bank is open the first Wednesday of each month from 9:30 to 11:30 am.
