Pope Francis has repeatedly challenged all of us to leave the comfort of our homes, rectories, sacristies and offices and encounter those in need. For the Pope, those "in need" are those searching for the basic necessities of life as well as those searching for meaning and
human fellowship in their lives. In addition to the ways Saint Kilian Parish already supports parishioners and neighbors, we are happy to respond to Pope Francis' call with the founding of
The Kilian Cupboard, initially offering Food Pantry and Fellowship Dinner ministries.
The Kilian Cupboard currently offers Fellowship Dinner and Food Pantry Services to surrounding communities.
Kilian Cupboard Fellowship Dinners - All Are Welcome!
Kilian Cupboard Fellowship Dinners provide simple meals once a week for anyone wishing to attend. If you are in need of fellowship, a good meal or simply would like to join us for dinner, you are more than welcome! Dinner is served on Wednesday evenings from 5:00pm - 6:00pm at the Saint Kilian Church Hall located at Clark adn Cherry Streets in Mars.
There are no strings attached, no speeches to listen to and no evangelization. Rather, dinner is served and enjoyed in the fellowship of volunteers and their families. The Saint Kilian Parish
nursing ministry will be on hand to provide health information
and blood pressure screening as requested.
Kilian Cupboard Food Pantry
The Kilian Cupboard Food Pantry is not a Food Bank and therefore not supported by any government
affiliated agency. Rather, this is a ministry providing food to assist neighbors in need according to established guidelines. The Kilian Cupboard Food Pantry operates on the generosity of parishioners and friends and is led by the Saint Vincent de Paul Society, Saint Kilian Conference.
The Food Pantry is open each Wednesday from 3:00pm – 6:00pm and is located at 205 Clark Street, Mars, PA 16046 in the lower level of the former Saint Kilian Parish Rectory. Please park in the main parking lot and use the garage entrance on the side.
