Feed My Starving Children
Close out Lent by serving starving children on Friday March 23rd. Feed My Starving Children is closed on Good Friday. You might be missing a fish fry, but you would be helping children desperate to survive. Volunteers are needed at Feed My Starving Children in Coon Rapids on Fri. March 23rd for the 9:30 -11:30 AM and 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM shifts. Please make this extra effort to spend no more than 2 hours packing meals for these starving children.
Parishioners are encouraged to invite family and friends. Let’s show our faith in action, even if it’s an extra sacrifice.
It’s as easy as 1,2,3.

Feed My Starving Children celebrated St. Patrick’s Volunteers on Friday May 26th. At the end of the 6 PM shift a certificate was presented to St. Patrick Catholic Church: Thank you for packing 649,512 meals. This will help feed 1,179 kids for an entire year!
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. Children and adults hand-pack meals that are specifically formulated for malnourished children. The meals are then shipped to nearly 70 countries worldwide.
In March 2010, in recognition of this unique opportunity to provide a practical and meaningful service project to the members of our parish, the Circles of Claddagh began organizing volunteers to pack meals once a month at FMSC in Coon Rapids. This ministry unites St. Patrick volunteers with other individuals and community groups that desire to respond to Christ’s call to feed the hungry.
Volunteers for this ministry are needed on the last Friday of each month. Serve from 9:30 -11:30 AM and/or 6:00 – 7:30 PM. (In November & December the Noon – 2:00 PM shift usually replaces the 6 PM reservation.) There are some volunteer guidelines and restrictions, and due to health concerns, FMSC requests that volunteers stay home when ill.
Volunteers may register for these 2018 shifts by selecting the shift they wish to work. Just link to the hours indicated.
