As you read this, what’s left of the Thanksgiving turkey is sitting in a refrigerator, and Thursday’s football games have become just a memory. Presuming that gratitude was given to God for His gifts before the first glass was raised or potatoes were passed, this time after Thanksgiving Day presents a challenge. Whether we are of humble means or abundantly blessed, there are people very much among us who need some of the good food and company we shared with loved ones this week.
If means allow, consider making an extra donation now to area food banks. Archdiocesan Nutritional Development Services (ndsarch.org) can tell how. And archdiocesan Catholic Social Services (css-phl.org) can offer ways to make the lives of our brothers and sisters in need a little brighter.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
