Each year Matthew’s Ministry provides weekend food for children in Brunswick County who are
classified as “food insecure”.
During the school year backpacks go home filled with food every Friday
and are returned empty every Monday to be filled again. Matthew’s Ministry provides weekly food to
over 500 children at 16 area schools.
Matthew’s Ministry will need backpacks filled with food to start the program again in the fall. There are
two ways that you can help fill this need:
Option 1: Pick up an empty backpack from Sacred Heart (there are 150 empty backpacks that are ready
to be filled).
Option 2: Purchase a backpack and fill it with the food items (listed below) and return your filled
backpack to Sacred Heart.
All filled backpacks will need to be returned to Sacred Heart by Sunday, August 18.

For our June show, we celebrate the 15th anniversary of Wilmington Catholic Radio which went on the air in July 2004. We chat with Board members Bill Hamilton, Jim Edens, and Greg Decker. Bill will recount his idea for founding the radio station after he heard the Apparitions of Our Lady tape by Bud McFarland, Sr. Bill felt called to learn more about his faith, and the idea for a Catholic radio station in Wilmington was born.
Bill invited Jim Edens to join the Board and enlisted Greg Decker's help whose expertise in computers was the perfect fit when the Board had a vacancy. Over the years, these men have worked tirelessly to expand the coverage of Catholic radio including Southport.
This show will air on Saturday, June 15th at 11:00 a.m. and Sunday, June 16th at 6:00 p.m.

Grant us to know Thee better, to love Thee more, to serve Thee without faltering.
