"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me"

Matthew 25:35-36

By performing the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy, we carry out our baptismal promise
to bring Christ to others through various programs and activities from three areas of service:

  • Food Based Programs
  • Charitable Drives
  • Social Justice Advocacy
