The First Sunday in Lent for the past several years has been designated PWRDF Sunday at our parish. In recent years, the PWRDF parish representatives, Mark and Phyllis Leyte, have organized a luncheon, usually of soup and sandwiches, the proceeds from which go to PWRDF. All food at the luncheon is donated and served by parishioners. And there is usually a guest speaker or presentation of some kind.
On Sunday, February 21, 2010 there were approximately 250 people at the luncheon and in excess of $1300 was raised for PWRDF. The response to providing food and to helping out is absolutely fantastic. In fact, more people offer to bring soup or sandwiches than is required to serve everyone. The guest speaker of this year's luncheon was Rev. Charles Greene.
The pictures below give a brief view of this year's luncheon.
