Social Concerns

Pope Francis: “God always forgives, we men forgive sometimes, but nature never forgives. If you give her a slap, she will give you one. I believe that we have exploited nature too much.”

Feed the Hungry: Please remember to bring a nonperishable food donation every Sunday. Checks written to BMAC Food Bank & put in the collection basket enable your food dollar to go 6X as far. Unfortunately there are many hungry people in our community, including children. Thank you so much for your ongoing generosity.
