Parish and senior ministry during a pandemic
The meals have proven to be a Eucharistic action. One recipient hadn’t had home cooked meals in years. Wheelchair bound and unable to use a stove or oven safely limited his cooking, so his meals had largely consisted of microwavable frozen meals.

A lifetime of meeting needs around the world and in our own backyard: Sister Patty Fillenwarth
