Turn the loaf of bread into sandwiches by using your choice of sandwich fillings (e.g., any type of cold cuts, peanut butter & jelly, etc). You can put a little mustard on the bread but no mayo or butter please. Put each sandwich into a baggie. Return the wrapped sandwiches to the loaf wrapper and close it up. Tape a piece of paper to the loaf wrapper telling the kind of sandwiches you have made (e.g., ham and Swiss on wheat with mustard) Bring the sandwiches to Our Lady of Peace on the Tuesday morning: From 7:00 am to 8:45 am, sandwiches can be left in the vestibule of the church on the side closest to the Rectory.
