On March 19, 2016  St. Catherine's of Temecula SVDP Ministry  will hold its' first annual "Friends of the Poor Walk" at St. Jeanne De Lestonnac School .  The goal of the walk is to raise money for the SVDP food pantry.  The pantry serves over 100 local families in need each week.  Although we receive generous food donations from area markets  and parishioners,  it is never sufficient to take care of the need.  The ministry must purchase meat and other basic food items weekly.   We need funds to make these purchases.  Please plan to participate.

  • Please reserve the walk date:  March 19, 2016  8 a.m.
  • Walk Registration:  will take place after Mass  the weekends of  February 29th and March 6th. 

In this,  the year that Our Holy Father Pope Francis has designated  "The Holy Year of Mercy",  what better way to spend time than walking to raise money used  to feed the poor. Feeding the poor is one of the corporal works of Mercy.
