Originally a response to the "Year of Mercy" in 2016, Welcome the Stranger has continued to provide personal care items, linens, towels, and home cleaning supplies to newly arrived immigrants who have been resettled in Concord.

Over 100 families have participated in this project by shopping for a list of designated items that are then delivered to a drop-off location at OLF.

If you would like to participate in welcoming not just strangers but new Americans, you can expect to go shopping at a cost of $25 to $40, three to four times per year.  Contact Maura O'Neill through the parish office, 526-4484, or email parishoffice@olfic.org
