Harker Heights, Texas LOC have Mass the second Saturday of the month followed by brunch and a meeting. Instead of brunch in March we collected the money it would have cost for the ladies to prepare the food and had a donation basket for the other ladies to contribute. The money collected was given to our parish priest to assist families in the parish who were needy at Easter. We collected $1,428.
Recently, Harker Heights LOC also collected non-perishable food items and monetary donations to help the two food centers in our area. The collection occurred before and after the weekend masses. The parishioners of St. Paul Chong Hasang Catholic church were very generous. The food centers tend to be needy this time of year as donations tend to decrease. The Ladies of Charity of Harker Heights were happy to have participated in this endeavor to aid the needy of our community.
