Parish Life at St. Barbara Parish

Volunteer at Feed My Starving Children

     St. Barbara’s Missionary Spirit Team is planning our next service opportunity for Friday, May 29th  from 8:00 to 9:30 pm at Feed My Starving Children’s Aurora location.  We will pack individual meals, called MannaPacks, which are rice based meals designed to save the lives of severely malnourished and starving children.  The meals are shipped around the world to areas where children are most in need.  You can find more information about the wonderful work they do at www.fmsc.org. This service project is open to 20 volunteers.  Children as young as 5 years old are welcome.  People putting the MannaPacks together will be standing, but there are projects available for people who may need to sit.  We will plan to meet at St. Barbara’s to carpool.   Volunteers have a great time at this high energy event.  If you’d like to sign up or have questions contact missionaryspirit@stbarbarabrookfield.org.
