We would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support of our “Stay in your Car Food Drive" on Friday May 1. It was one of our most successful food drives to date! We received 3,952 pounds of food, and $870 from not only our Parishioners, but the community as well. St. Lucy’s is the food project/warehouse of Catholic Charities, where food is sorted and donated to over 88 locations, regardless of religious/ethnic backgrounds. If you and your family would like to help them in this endeavor, please call St. Lucy’s warehouse in Manassas at: 703-479-2975.
