Works of Mercy
Each human being is made in the image and likeness of God, and so deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells us that at the end of all things, we will be judged on what we have done for the least of our brothers and sisters. Below are a few of the ways we trying to live this Gospel imperative in the Catholic Community of Northbrook.

Every week, parishioners are invited to drop off non-perishable food before they attend Mass at St. Norbert. Our dedicated volunteers sort the food and bring it to the Northfield Township Food Pantry and to our sharing parishes, St. Margaret of Scotland and St. Martin de Porres.
Since 1998, when the Deerfield Panera opened, this group started a partnership picking up end of day donations to wrap and transport to agencies that can distribute excess food and help reduce hunger.
