Our Lady of Good Counsel Food Pantry Needs a Van

In order to expand and reach more people and families in need, Our Lady of Good Counsel Food Pantry, located on SR 16 in St. Augustine, needs a new or gently used large van to pick up and deliver meat and produce from the Feeding Northeast Florida Food Bank in Jacksonville. Access to this food will enable us to nearly double our program and reach more of our less fortunate brothers, sisters and children, shut-ins, the elderly and those without transportation, supplying them with good nutritious meals. This van will truly make a difference in our Community Outreach Food Pantry Program. Your donation is tax-deductible within the confines of the law. If you are interested in generously donating a van, please call the parish at (904) 824-8688 and speak to our pastor, Father Guy Noonan.

Keeping Students Connected to the Catholic Church

It is hard to imagine that 80% of our college students – the same students you worked so hard to nurture in their spiritual development – stop practicing the faith at some point during college. But he problem is very real. Together with Bishop Estévez, the Diocese of St. Augustine is continuing work to implement a High School Outreach Program in our parishes and Catholic high schools with the help of Newman Connection. This year we are asking the information be collected on student contact cards provided by Newman Connection at a graduation event. Once this is complete, you can then enter the information on the Newman Connection website or send the completed cards to Cassie Campton, Director of Outreach. If you have any questions, contact Cassie Campton at ccampton@newmanconnection.com.
