Dear Saint Cassian Church Families,
I hope the start of your 2023 is going well. I would like to thank everyone in our parish who already has signed up to help and donate items to support our Midnight Run relief mission. Saint Cassian Church will be making a Midnight Run Relief Mission on March 4, 2023.
Information about Midnight Run
St. Cassian Parish has reconnected with Midnight Run, the volunteer organization that “coordinates over 1,000 relief missions per year, to distribute food, clothing, blankets, and personal care items to the homeless poor on the streets of New York City. The late-night relief efforts create a forum for trust, sharing, understanding, and affection. That human exchange, rather than the exchange of goods, is the essence of the Midnight Run mission.
Ways to Help
As the expression goes, “Many hands, make light work.” We are grateful to those of you who have been involved in this ministry in the past, and to those looking to get involved for the first time. As we continue to raise awareness, remember we can all make a difference. Below is information on how you can help.

We are still in need of men’s and women’s underwear, plain long sleeve shirts for both men and women, and travel-size toothpaste, soap, and lotion. If you are not an online shopper, feel free to drop off donated items in person, at the parish office.
Thank you all again for your service. You are not only making a difference in our parish, but on a larger scale, you are delivering lasting results to help grow God’s Kingdom.
