Franciscan Seminary Collection--Next Weekend
A special collection to support the seminary expenses for the young Friars of the Conventual Franciscans is taken up every year around this time. This year the Friars on the west coast have 3 students going to school in preparation for priesthood, one student going to school in preparation for the brotherhood, one student doing a pastoral year and 2 students who are spending a year in preparation for the novitiate and about thirty students in Vietnam (in the Mission) at various stages of prepa- ration. The collection will take place next weekend.

Food Needed for Christian Women’s Pantry
The Five Cities Christian Women’s Food Pantry has served the poor through the facility in Grover Beach for more than 25 years.

Everything collected is taken to the facility during the week.
