Social Outreach Update

St. Therese Donations
St. Therese Donations

Thank you to the many Mission San Luis Rey families who continue to make our parish food pantry possible! In these unexpected times, it has been so encouraging seeing our parish community answer the call to care for the vulnerable in our Oceanside community. With the help of very special volunteers and donors, our food pantry continues to provide food and toiletry items to families in need in a dignified and loving way that mirrors St. Francis’ care for all of creation, and especially those on the margins of society.

Please know that you are in our constant prayers and we are here for our parish community, ready to lend a helping hand. If you are able, please consider contributing to our ongoing work. We have set up a “contactless” donation drop off on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to 3 pm on the south side of the Loretto House. We also regularly update our Amazon wishlist ( Cash donations are also welcome.

We are also excited to welcome new donations from a partnering parish, St. Therese of Carmel! Thank you, St. Therese for your beautiful witness and support!

Social Outreach is looking forward to having our parish community back together soon, and in the meantime, please pray for us as we pray for you!
