What do you need on any journey? Good footwear, of course, and a pair of clean, warm socks. During the Lenten journey at St. Oswald’s, parishioners were encouraged to bring in a pair of socks each Sunday with the intent of filling the old granite font with them.
Fill it they did—filled and overflowing. As Lent draws to a close, 169 pairs of socks were delivered to the downtown east side Union Gospel Mission.
Many thanks to Joy Mancinelli for the submission and to Brenda Murphy for the photo.
