We've begun a joint community garden with Holy Innocents, West Orange. The plan is that some of the produce grown in Hope Gardens will be given out monthly at our Food Pantry. If you would like to volunteer to help with regular gardening tasks or plan for the expansion, please email Catherine Tamasik.

Our long time dream has become a reality. Led by the Outreach Committee, our congregation has always participated in activities to help those in need, but longed for a way to help those in our community directly.
In May 2015, our parishioner, Cardie Mortimer, generously donated the funds to renovate our kitchen in honor of his parents, Charles and Elisabeth Mortimer. The kitchen was dedicated in October and now includes a food pantry to store goods for those in need.

These two fliers can be printed on purple paper and taped to your Lent Box as a reminder to collect 40 items over the 40 days of Lent for the Holy Spirit Verona Food Pantry. Thanks for participating!

Do something special this Lent: help fight hunger one day at a time! Place one non-perishable food or toiletry item into a box each day during Lent (40 days = 40 items). Return the box and its contents to Holy Spirit Verona by Palm Sunday, April 14. If you would like to pick up a box, email us to make arrangements, or download two flyers to make your own box.
