Mary’s Pantry


Update: August 2020
Mary's Pantry made its last delivery to our community partners this last week. A big thank you to everyone who donated and to those who helped with coordination and deliveries! Over the last five months, All Saints donated over 3,556 pounds of food and household supplies to families in need, and to community partners including 360 Communities' food shelves, the Open Door Mobile Pantry, and Pregnancy Choices Life Care Center. We also supported the St. Vincent de Paul Society's Minneapolis location after it was looted in the rioting in June. All Saints gathered four pallets worth of products for their food shelf and thrift store that serves thousands of people each week. In addition, greeting cards and treats were collected and shared with senior residents at Highview Hills and Trinity Campus.
The generosity of the people of All Saints Parish is astounding and inspiring! Thank you to all who donated, know you made a direct difference in the lives of God's children.

Mary’s Pantry: Not as well known as COVID 19

by Chris Kuhn
To be honest I never had much of a connection with Mary until I learned more about her as part of a Marian consecration I did about 8 years ago. I chose to explore Marian consecration because I had a simple epiphany: the Saints and holy men and women I most respect LOVE Mary. There are a lot of apologetic writers and smart people out there that provide lots of theological reasons and supports for our “different” Catholic focus on Mary. But for me, the turning point was a simple understanding and desire to trust Saints like John Paul II, Maximillian Kolbe, Mother Teresa, Padre Pio, Josemaria Escriva, Therese of Lisieux, John Vianney, etc…

“Be it done unto me… do whatever he tells you” - not many of Mary’s words are recorded in the scriptures but they point to why Catholics love Mary; she trusted in God and said “yes.” So simple, so fundamental, and so challenging at times!

The appearance of COVID-19 in Minnesota, closing of schools, toilet paper hoarding, and “panic” by some and worrying by others resulted in a situation where our pastor wanted to be ready to respond practically to the needs of our parishioners and others in our community. We wanted to provide a temporary place where people could get needed items and also donate items. A place where people could trust in God’s providence and care for them through the Church. A place where people could say “yes” and trusting God give to those with less. This place, this idea is “Mary’s Pantry”, a temporary collection site or hub, at All Saints, that parishioners can easily give to or make use of if needed (see the list on this page).
 
Thanks to everyone who has stepped up to help with or given to Mary's Pantry!
