Communication from Bishop Brennan:

How can you help?

We have been asked if there is anything that people can do to help those in need. The Parish Pastoral Council, the
Knights of Columbus, the Men and Women’s Faith and Fellowship groups, the Respect Life Group and many more,
including individual parishioners, have offered their assistance in a variety of ways and we thank you. Here are few examples of how you can help:

  • The Catholic Foundation has set up a “Catholic Community Response Fund.” This is an emergency fund to raise
    needed money for families and individuals in our parishes and food for our food pantries. To donate, go to
    https://catholic-foundation.org/ .
  • The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Council of the Catholic Diocese of Columbus has shared information regarding
    locations throughout Franklin County which are operating Drive-Thru donation service so that people may drop
    off food and other needed items. Find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SSVDPColumbus/ .
  • Our parish St. Vincent de Paul Society Conference has offered this message:
    “The St Vincent de Paul Society will be continuing to minister to the neediest in our community during this
    time. We are currently working to coordinate food deliveries from our pantry to the homes of those who request
    assistance. We are not accepting food donations at this time, but we will accept cash donations to help us
    purchase food through Mid-Ohio Food Bank or local grocery stores to restock our shelves. You can make a
    check out to St Michael’s St. Vincent de Paul and mail it to the church. The St. Michael family has always been
    generous when the need arises. We thank you for your inquiries and your desire to help. If you know of someone
    within our parish boundaries who needs assistance, please refer them to our hot line at 614-885-7814 Option 7.”
  • Other resources will be communicated as they become available.
