Cathedral Parishioners Serve at Food Bank as Part of ‘Mercy Matters’ Activity

In a service activity for Hunger Action Month, more than 20 parishioners from the Cathedral Parish of St. Patrick in Harrisburg volunteered at the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank on Sept. 11, amassing 42 service hours for the organization.

The service project was an activity of the parish’s Mercy Matters Committee. Established early last year, the committee’s mission is “to educate, plan, organize and engage parishioners in the corporal and spiritual works of mercy and respond to current social needs” and build relationships with local outreach ministries.
