Parishioners reach out to neighbors

The Brooklyn Paper

Big-hearted youngsters at St. Anselm’s Church reserved a thought for their underprivileged neighbors by coordinating a drive during Lent at the Bay Ridge house of worship for Lent.

The Rev. Michael Gelfant and the altar servers placed a crib in front of the church, 4th Avenue and 82nd Street, inviting parishioners to donate new items for newborn babies and gift cards for teenagers.

The altar boys and girls then packed the items and loaded them into Rev’ Gelfant’s car before transporting them to the Mercy First Angel Guardian Campus, 6301 12th Avenue.
