The Social Justice committee at Zion is proposing that our parish create an exciting program this summer. The Summer Feeding Program will provide food for those children who receive free and reduced lunches at school and who participate in the school year backpack program but might not have enough food when they are at home for the summer. We have the funds to do this; what we will need is hands to make it work - hands to shop for food, to pack it and to deliver it to the children. Childhood hunger is a very real problem in our county. Won't you prayerfully consider how you might help provide a solution to the problem?
Please keep Dan Snellings and his family in your prayers. Dan's mother, Judy, died last week. May the light of the resurrection be a beacon of home to this family.
(Dan's address is 117 Village Rd., Lynchburg VA 24502.)

For the beauty of the earth,
for the beauty of the skies,
for the love which from our birth
over and around us lies;
Christ, our God, to thee we raise
this our sacrifice of praise.
