A great opportunity to be the hands of Christ right here in Fremont. Hunger is not just a third-world problem. Hunger exist right here in Fremont. Can you help us address this issue? We are in immediate need of one more person to pick up soon-to-be-expired food at Whole Foods on Thursdays (once a month) between 7-8 am and deliver it to the Abode office on Fremont Blvd. It takes a minivan, small SUV, or pickup truck. Some containers may weight 20-30 pounds. We had four people doing this, but one can no longer help. The remaining three are very flexible and often switch weeks or cover for each other. Please contact Steve Conn at (510) 220-6710 or sfconn@gmail.com

  • A. Yes. Double and Single Cremation Niches are still available for immediate and/or pre-need purchase through Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services.
