“Seeing with the eyes of Christ, I can give to others much more than their outward necessities; I can give them the look of love which they crave. ”

SERVICE: Taking Care of His Suffering Body

Safe Nights

The presence of Jesus “in the flesh” is most evident in the faces of men and women who have no place to lay their heads. In serving and loving them, we can serve and love him.

St. Mary parshioners work together with other local churches to provide dinner and lunches for the Safe Nights program serving our homeless brothers and sisters.

“Safe Nights” is a united and compassionate response that provides overnight shelter to individuals and families from October 1st – April 21st of each year. The program rotates to a different host site each week, providing dinner and breakfast from  7pm to 7am each day. Staff and volunteers are available on-site to provide supervision and coordination of services. Participants are provided with everything that they need for their stay, including cots, linens, and toiletry items. Supportive services and enrichment activities are conducted nightly to encourage participants in their journey towards self-sufficiency.

St. Teresa's Exhortation

Christ has no body on earth now, but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ must look out on the world. Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which he is to bless his people.

-St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
