At the Mother House and in many of our missions around the world,
we support those in need with food boxes and other basic necessities.
The House of Bread, in Quebec City, is our most significant distribution center.
Every day, a meal is offered to our beneficiaries.
Once a week a well-stocked box of fruits, vegetables and other food items is prepared.
Without your assistance, it would be impossible for us to help people in need.
Every day, we offer our prayers for you,
asking God to return in abundant blessings and graces your generosity towards us.
I was hungry, and you gave Me to eat;
I was thirsty, and you gave Me to drink;
I was a stranger, and you took Me in;
I was naked, and you clothed Me....
Amen I say to you: Whenever you have done it
to one of these least of My brethren, you have done it to Me.
says Jesus in His Gospel.
(Holy Gospel in St. Matthew 25:35-36, 40)
