Thanksgiving Heartside

Being located in the Heartside district of Grand Rapids provides a wonderful opportunity to live out our Catholic social teachings by collecting food and clothes and sharing with our neighbors. Each November, we collect clothes for the Cathedral Outreach Program and food for the Access Food Bank. The opportunity to serve others during the Thanksgiving holiday connects us to a spirit of thanksgiving and gratitude for all the gifts we have in our lives.

“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory…Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”

Matthew 25:31-36
