CROP Walk is a global initiative sponsored by Church World Services. Its purpose is to stamp out hunger and to lift people out of poverty. This year marks the 20th year of a CROP Walk in Southeast Sussex County.
This year, St. Ann Parish will do its part to overcome hunger and poverty by participating in the Southeast Sussex County CROP Walk. The CROP Walk will be held on Sunday, October 18th at 3:30 PM at Our Lady Of Guadalupe Church. We will begin with prayer and music in church, provided by the Saint Ann Contemporary Music Ensemble. The walk route will be around the OLG parking lot. All are invited to participate. If you are unable to walk, you may come for prayer and music in the church.
Participants must wear a mask and sign a release form prior to the walk.
It is important to note that 25% of all monies collected from the CROP Walk in our area will be distributed among the five food pantries in the Ministerium. We are all able to appreciate how our food pantries are being challenged at this time, so all donations are greatly appreciated.
Donations may be made by check, made out to CWS. They may either be mailed to St. Ann’s Church with “att: CROP Walk” on the envelope, or they may be placed in an envelope labeled CROP Walk and placed in the donation baskets at the doors of both St. Ann Church and Our Lady of Guadalupe Church.
Let us support our sisters and brothers in need and one another in our CROP Walk.
