Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?"
"Seven," they replied, "and a few fish." He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground. Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, gave thanks, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds.
They all ate and were satisfied.
~ Matthew 15:34-38 ~

The Loaves and Fishes ministry helps Bienvenidos Outreach Inc. of Santa Fe feed the hungry. They meet the 2nd Sunday of every month after the 9:00 a.m. Mass in the Parish Hall.
The group’s first objective is to make as many sack lunches as their food resources allow.
Each sack lunch (generally around 120) includes a sandwich, drink, cookies,
fruit, & chips. In the hot summer months, this group also provides a
large salad (green salad or pasta), and hard-boiled eggs. They also have
iced tea or lemonade to quench the thirst.
In the cold months, the group gets the soup kettles going and they have a pick pot of chicken/vegetable/rice soup. Also, there is usually a pot of hot chocolate made and handed out on cold winter days.
The second objective is to have these delicious sack lunches in Santa Fe no later than 12 noon to distribute to the homeless and needy.
An assembly of sandwich makers and sack lunch stuffers are in high gear on the 2nd Sunday of each month after the 9:00 a.m. mass in the Parish Hall. Please feel free to stop by and lend a hand. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
