Join our parish team, St. Cecilia Cares, in the upcoming local “Pura Vida Feed My Starving Children” mobile food-packing event on May 19th and 20th.  Everyone age 8 and older is welcome!  Age appropriate tasks will be assigned for our “older and wiser” team members!  This year, we are hoping to include more of our youth as well.  It’s an excellent service project for our 8th and 9th grade Confirmation candidates, and can also be a valuable and fun family project while teaching our kids the importance of community service.  The FMSC organization is a very worthy cause.  They consistently receive the highest awards for integrity and trustworthiness, with over 90% of total donations going directly toward feeding kids in need.  Last year, our team alone in a total of 4 hours (2 shifts) packed 93,528 meals and raised $1,850 in donations to help defray the cost of $53,000 to fund the entire 3-day FMSC event.  In 2017, the FMSC Organization fed 779,000 children in 58 countries every day!  This year, we want to help make a bigger difference!  Please join us on one of our team’s two shifts (tentatively Saturday from 10 to 12:00N, or Sunday from 12:30 to 2:30PM) while we pack these life-saving meals.  If you can’t be there to pack meals, please consider making a donation to “Pura Vida* – Feed My Starving Children” under our team umbrella to help fund the event.  To donate, type in your browser which should take you directly to the “St. Cecilia Cares” team page to donate; or, go to the St. Cecilia Parish website ( and scroll down to the Feed My Starving Children logo on the right – click on the logo and then scroll down until you see the “Make a Difference – DONATE” button and click there to get to our team page.   Additional information about both the “Feed My Starving Children” organization and about our participation as a parish team, will continue to be shared at Sunday masses, and in upcoming bulletins.  If the website is not your thing, feel free to write to the team at or phone Gina Denner at 203-968-6388, to make a donation, join the team, or just to ask questions.
