Gathering Harvest

The Gathering Harvest, A New Ministry at St Anthony Church

St. Anthony Church has initiated a new outreach ministry called the “Gathering Harvest Community Garden & Fellowship Mission”.  Inspired by Matthew 25:35~ “For when I was hungry you gave me food”, the goal is to provide fresh produce for friends and neighbors in need.  There are two important facets of this ministry – growing produce and growing friendships.
Most charitable food donations are of non-perishable goods for obvious reasons. However, the shortcoming with this is that there is a great deal of processed food, which lacks the nutritional value of fresh vegetables in a healthy diet.  So the need for fresh vegetables is great.
The produce from our gardens will be distributed to St Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen, St. Anthony Food Pantry and the Prospect Food Bank.

Here are some photos of produce that is being harvested!

 

The “Gathering Harvest F3 Golf League” will focus on the “Family, Fun & Fellowship” facet of the mission.  For a modest weekly fee, golfers will meet and play Sunday evenings at 6pm at Highland Greens Golf Course. Singles, twosome, threesomes and foursomes of all ages and abilities, are welcome to enjoy this eight-week, scramble format league which will run from June 24 through August 12.  Free group instruction will be offered one hour prior to tee time.  A limited number of golf sets will be available for use by those without their own equipment.  A portion of the greens fees will be donated by Highland Greens to support the Gathering Harvest.
Gather your friends and family or take this opportunity to make some new friends by doing something that will benefit your neighbors and yourselves this summer!
Both the Gathering Harvest Community Garden and F3 Golf League welcome ALL!
