Pope John Paul II High School in Royersford delivered 107 full Thanksgiving meals on Tuesday, Nov. 24 — including turkey, corn, green beans, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, stuffing and a pie — to needy families throughout Montgomery County and beyond.
The project saw PJP students raise $5,686 for the initiative. Before heading out Tuesday morning to make deliveries personally, the students began with Mass at 9:30 a.m. in the school chapel.
The parishes and organizations receiving the meals include: St. Mary Parish, Schwenksville (St. Vincent DePaul Program); St. Aloysius Parish, Pottstown; Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Bridgeport; St. Patrick Parish, Norristown; Catholic Social Services, Norristown (see more about this program); St. Gabriel Parish, Stowe; St. Vincent De Paul Society, Royersford, St. Columbkill Parish, Boyertown; St. Philip Neri Parish, Lafayette Hill; and St. Francis of Assisi Parish, Norristown.
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.
