What is “Pence Sunday?”

Today’s bulletin mentioned something that we at Holy Innocents take for granted: “Next Sunday is Pence Sunday.” Parishioner Wally Jacobs recycles small cans (typically, they are baking powder cans because of the handy plastic snap-on lids). He labels them with our names; we take them home, collect pocket change, and bring them back. The money collected goes to the Schaumburg Food Pantry.

Visitors are welcome to participate; there should be an unlabeled can or two on the shelves near the door. Eventually… you get a can of your own!
