"For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them." (Matthew 18:20). A great monthly ministry St. Agnes has done for years is the Midnight Run with the next one happening on Thursday, 8/31. The group meets at St. Agnes Church at 5:30 to organize & pack donations, and then at 7:00, they leave for New Haven to service our needy friends. All are welcome to join – either to organize and pack or to service in New Haven or both. Last month they served at 80+ needy friends. Even though there is a big push to end homelessness in New Haven, there are still many who are living outside or in tent communities or just need help. They may be housed but there may not be an actual bed to sleep in or warm home cooked food to eat. And sometimes, more importantly, a friendly face to share a few words and laughs with. In one of Father James Martin's, a Jesuit priest & author, presentations he talks about “Finding God in all things" and seeing “God in everyone.“ Those we serve may be struggling with addictions, mental illness or just an unfortunate set of circumstances but God is in each and every one of them and in each of our volunteers. This month we expect a big crowd and we rely on your donations to be able to feed all who come to us in need. We are looking for donations of: pasta, beans, hot dogs & buns, sauerkraut, condiments, sliced cold cuts like turkey and cheese, granola bars, anything chocolate or sweet! Always needed are: men’s white socks & t- shirts (L & XL, baby wipes, travel size toiletries, blankets, sheets, sleeping bags & Gatorade. There is strength in numbers, so if you would like to help in any capacity, please contact Sue at stagnesmidnightrun@hotmail.com. All donations can be left at St. Agnes near the parish hall. If you are unable to help this month, they will be back at it in September! For more info click below and scroll to Midnight Run. #pnpmilford #faithinaction
