I noticed the headline of last week’s Press “Compassion returns to Brentwood” – and the story about the charitable giving during this holiday season. All to the good of our community.
I would like to add my “Thank You” to the army of men and women who serve the poor in Brentwood through St. Vincent de Paul society at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, as well as the equivalent at St. Anthony in Oakley. Between the two churches, some 10,000 families will have been served in 2009! And the best part is that it happens every week, not just during the holidays.
Thank you to all who work so hard for the poor in our communities.
Fr. Jerry Brown
