Sandwich Collection Resumes
The Social Action Committee is resuming the monthly sandwich collection in September, after it being on hold since last year due to Covid-19. This much needed project provides food for the homeless who do not frequent shelters. The sandwiches are distributed by ImmaCare in Hartford. The need is great, but thanks to contributions from volunteer “sandwich makers,” ImmaCare can provide help and comfort to these people. Making sandwiches is a good way to involve younger family members in this ministry.
- Any type of bread may be used.
- Two (2) slices of meat (such as ham, bologna, salami) & a slice of cheese per sandwich
- About one pound of meat is needed for a loaf of bread. You can vary the ingredients if you don’t have enough of one kind to finish the loaf.
- Please DO NOT put condiments or butter on the bread.
- Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches are also very popular.
- Sandwiches are individually wrapped, put back in the bread wrapper, twist-tied, and placed in the box in the church foyer.
The following are the dates for the rest of 2021 and through August 2022. You may wish to post this schedule on your refrigerator or bulletin board as a reminder.
(* Socks and T-shirts in adult sizes also collected in September and February. **Juice boxes also collected in October and May).
October 2/3 **

Ancient Order of Hibernians
Campaign to Build an Irish Canal Workers Memorial
The Ancient Order of Hibernians Hartford Division 2 is fundraising to build a monument to help remember a forgotten Irish-Catholic cemetery in Windsor Locks.
The memorial will honor the 400 immigrant laborers who left their homeland in Ireland and came to the area between May 1827 and November 1829 to build the canal bypassing the treacherous rapids of the Connecticut River.
In particular, we will honor those canal workers and family members that are buried in an unmarked Catholic cemetery that is located about 100 yards and across the canal from where the memorial will be placed.
The memorial will be located at the Windsor Locks Canal Trail State Park near the Montgomery Mills Apartments.
Gifts are accepted at https://gofund.me/a3283c68 or by mailing a check to Irish Canal Workers Memorial Fund, AOH Hartford Division 2, PO Box 68, Glastonbury, Conn., 06033.
