To share the message of Christ with every person in Edmonson County.
Since July 1st, 2015 our thrift store in Brownsville has assisted 178 people with utilities and other types of financial assistance of close to $700 per month for a total of nearly $7,500. We also assisted 105 people with free clothes.
The Creed: The homily is followed by a few moments of silence during which we thank God for the word we’ve heard and apply the message of the readings to our daily living. We then stand and recite the Creed. The Creed is a statement of our faith in the word we’ve heard proclaimed in Scripture and the homily and a profession of the faith that leads us to give our lives for one another as Christ did for us. Originally, the Creed was the profession of faith of those to be baptized at this point in the Mass.
We had our food pantry grand opening, ribbon cutting and blessing ceremony Tuesday, May 31st. The pantry is located directly behind the thrift store at 301 N. Main St. in Brownsville. Stop by and take a look sometime.
