We have one final Christmas gift for all of you! We hope you will enjoy this video commemorating Christmas 2022 at Our Lady of Peace, with photos of our beautiful Memorial Garden and church decorations, set to a performance of “O Magnum Mysterium” by Morten Lauridsen, sung by our very own adult choir!
The OLP Food Pantry is open on Tuesdays, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and the last Saturday of the month from 9:00 -11:00 a.m. We will visit the New Providence Senior Housing once a month. During our discussion with representatives from the apartments, they indicated that with the rising cost of food, they are finding it difficult to purchase Ensure and Boost. If you could contribute one of these protein drinks, we will deliver it to them with other food.
The Pantry volunteers would like to thank you for your monetary and/or food donations throughout the year. We could not make it without your help. The following items are in most need: cereal, canned meats, beans, pasta, pasta sauce and toilet paper.
Early Riser Volunteers: The team could use 2 people to help wrap bread on Friday morning at 8AM. It would require about 45 minutes. Please call Marie Russo if you can help: 908-472-3868.
A special thank you to BAKE in Summit for their weekly donation of bread and pastries.
Thank you for your generosity!
