Food Sunday Collection . . . More Than Food!

St. Thomas Aquinas has been collecting food for the Lussier Community Education Center (LCEC) for over 20 years, with each donation averaging nearly 600 to 800 pounds. Now, Covid-19 has created new and different needs at the Food Pantry. To avoid overstocking unneeded items, St. Thomas Aquinas is requesting parishioners to donate the following requested items for June’s collection.
