I went to the Cathedral tonight for 5 PM Mass, at which Ave Verum Corpus was played and Panis Angelicus was sung for the Eucharist. That's the good news, but the bad news was to be found in the bulletin: The Friar's Pantry, our designated charity, is no more. Here's the announcement:
THE FRIAR’S PANTRY LAST DAY OF OPERATIONS WILL BE JULY 25TH DUE TO LACK OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT.
We pray that those who relied on the pantry will find other means of assistance, that we may find other ways to assist them, and that Regina Pacis Cantorum will find another charity to support. I'm sure Kathy will be open to suggestions.The volunteers, John Maddy and I, Gail Scalzi, wish to express our heartfelt thanks for the generosity and support you have given to the Friar’s Pantry all these years. Without your support we could not have accomplished the mission of the Pantry; to feed the needy and less fortunate in our community (Reno downtown area) with special emphasis to our veterans. Thank you. May God bless you always.
