The Four Pillars of Stewardship: Service
A parish opens its hearts, wallets to serve others
(PHOTOS) On a cool September morning, members of St. John the Baptist Parish in Spearville were busy lifting dozens of heavy boxes filled with food items.
A few cars zoomed by along First Street in Dodge City as the volunteers loaded the boxes from trucks onto dollies. They then rolled the stacks of boxes up a long sidewalk, and carried them one by one down a set of cement stairs into a basement storage room.
They were bringing the donated food into Manna House, a facility in Dodge City that not only serves food to anyone in need, but also provides shelter for the night, and even clothes.
