Reserve your spot now for our Spring Service Day – April 8 (RSVP by April 4)

Spring Service Day at Feed My Starving Children

Join us on Saturday, April 8 for a food packing event at the Feed My Starving Children warehouse located at 555 Exchange Court, Aurora, IL 60504 (just northwest of Fox Valley Mall). Work together with fellow parishioners in packing meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. These meals are then shipped to nearly 70 countries around the world. Last year 130 St. Raphael volunteers packed meals for the world’s hungry children. Meal packing sessions are 2 hours long and include a 15 minute orientation. 403 kids were fed 1 meal a day for 1 year in Haiti and Nicaragua through our parish efforts!! That was 147,744 meals packed. Awesome!!! Let’s even increase our amounts this year. How about our RE groups, Confirmation groups, SCC groups, School groups and families register in this worthwhile Service opportunity. We make a difference
