QUEENS PRIEST TO EMBARK ON 100 MILE JOURNEY TO RAISE FUNDS FOR PARISH FOOD PANTRY
The Diocese of Brooklyn is announcing that Father Christopher Heanue, Administrator at Holy Child Jesus Roman Catholic Church, will undertake a special fundraising effort next week to support the parish food pantry. He will bike 100-miles from the parish in Richmond Hill, Queens to East Hampton, Long Island. Father Heanue is calling the ride “100 Miles of Hope.”
Throughout the course of the Coronavirus pandemic, donations to Holy Child Jesus Roman Catholic Church have maintained the operation of the food pantry. Two parishioners will join Father Heanue on the journey which they plan to complete in approximately 10 hours.
“These have been difficult months. It is vital that the food pantry continues to serve those in need, and I am committed to doing all I can to keep bringing hope to our people through its service,” said Father Heanue.
