Ministry of Mercy Leaders Mass & Luncheon: August 22

Event on: 2015-August 22nd 10:30 AM - 1:00 PM

This event is one of appreciation for and recognition of those parishioners who are active Ministries of Mercy leaders within their parishes. The Ministries of Mercy initiative was developed to assist parishes in developing ministries focused on serving the poor, suffering and marginalized in their communities. They are modeled after Christ’s own example of reaching out to the poor and His Gospel mandate that we serve the least among us as manifested in the Corporal Works of Mercy. These include the following:


  • Food & Clothing Ministries – providing these necessities to the poor
  • Shelter Ministries – providing shelter to the homeless and people in challenging situations (e.g., utility shut-off, eviction and foreclosure notices), working to develop a pathway towards self-sufficiency, including jobs and permanent housing
  • Life Ministries – teaching respect for all human life from conception to natural death and organize for its protection
  • Visitation Ministries – bringing reconciliation, healing, and the love of God to prisoners, the homebound and those in nursing homes
  • Health Ministries – providing medical care to the underserved members of the community, including parish nurses, clinics, and mobile medical services
