Lorain, OH faithful help feed needy on Thanksgiving — and beyond!

LORAIN, OH [MW Diocese Communications] — Every year, the faithful of Saints Peter and Paul Church here conduct a Thanksgiving turkey drive to brighten the holiday for some of the area’s neediest families.  And this year was no exception with regard to putting Matthew 25 into action!

Lorain OH faithful help feed needy on Thanksgiving and beyond“On the eve of thanksgiving — Wednesday, November 23 — a group of parish men and youth dropped off 20 turkeys at Haven House, a Lorain homeless shelter and food bank,” said Priest Joseph McCartney, Rector of Saints Peter and Paul.  “We then drove to FOCUS Cleveland’s Saint Herman’s House of Hospitality, where we dropped off a whopping 125 turkeys!  These turkeys fed the homeless and needy in Cleveland on Thanksgiving Day and throughout the coming year.”

Saint Herman’s House is a men’s homeless shelter in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood.  Founded in 1977, it became part of the FOCUS North America family on January 1, 2013.  In addition to sheltering homeless men, the house serves three hot meals a day, seven days a week, to men, women and children in the community — some 70,000 meals each year — and provides groceries and clothing to those in need.
