Today Was Packing Day
Every year the Episcopal Church Women of Parroquia San Cristóbal have their Love Basket program. They collect money and
then assemble paques of food to distribute to the poor for Christmas. Today was "Packing Day." I was pleased to see several young persons there helping with the packing.
Tomorrow we will distribute the paques, after our Holy Eucharist and Healing service. The folks at San Cristóbal are really wonderful about making sure that we have food for the poor; many people bring food every Sunday, and a basket of food comes up with the Gifts during the Offertory. Sometimes I feel like a second-century bishop preparing paques of food to distribute between the two Sunday services. But Love Basket program distributes much more food than I do on Sundays. We prepared 80 paques in under an hour this morning, and they will all be gone tomorrow. This is an important shared ministry in our parish, and I am so happy that the young people are involved.
The congregation is on to me now. While I was taking photos today, I was asked "Are these showing up on the blog?"
