St. Genevieve Father’s Day Weekend Food Drive, June 16-17, will benefit The Patrician Society~a Hidden Gem In Our Midst!
The Society was founded in 1981 by Fr. Gerald McCaffrey who was deeply concerned by the growing poverty and related problems in Central Norristown. He recruited a few Catholic laymen who incorporated The Patrician Society as a ministry dedicated to serving the poorest of the poor in the greater Norristown area. Their ministry is located in the basement of St. Patrick’s in Norristown and provides the following free services:
- A Food Cupboard which provides food to over 7500 people annually
- A U.M.A.N. Program which provides funds for Housing, Utilities, & Medical Aid for Neighbors in need.
- Six one week Summer Camps for local needy children ages 5-11
