Novena to Saint Ann - Day 5, Saturday July 22, 2006

Today our novena takes a slightly different turn with our annual parish day of service. The formal service program is our "Christmas in July" meal for the needy. The parish has been doing this annually for eighteen years. The meal is held as part of the interfaith "Loaves and Fishes" program which serves breakfast and a hot dinner meal on the last two Saturdays of the month to those who need it in downtown. There are so many aspects to readying the meal and serving it, so there's just about something for everyone and the community is very generous. Those who are not able to participate for whatever reason are encouraged to do some form of service on their own to someone in need.

More on my experiences serving (and being served) another day...
