“It is our duty to live in history, side by side with our peers, sharing their worries and hopes, because the Christian is and must be fully a man of his time. He cannot escape into another dimension, ignoring the tragedies of his era, closing his eyes and heart to the anguish that pervades life. On the contrary, it is he who, although not 'of' this world, is immersed 'in' this world every day, ready to hasten to wherever there is a brother in need of help, a tear to be dried, a request for help to be answered. On this will we be judged!"

The Social Concerns Committee

The Social Concerns Committee meets quarterly, in the 8th grade classroom at St. Francis Hall.  We currently have 24 members on the committee.  We begin our meetings with a prayer, and then continue on to discuss the past agenda, the current agenda, and plan out upcoming parish activities/events for the year.  Members of this committee volunteer to lead an activity, and they recruit members from within the Social Concerns Committee to assist them with the activity in which they volunteer to lead.  The Social Concerns Committee also leads the ministry of St. Mary's Good Shepherd Food Pantry, which opened up February, 2017.   We would like to welcome and encourage more parishioners to join the Social Concerns Committee.  For more information or to become a member of this committee, contact the parish  office at 301-934-8825.

Prayer for missionaries

O almighty God, Lord of the harvest of souls, we ask you to guide and bless all who have gone forth to preach the Gospel. Endow them with the gifts of generosity and concern. Send your Holy Spirit on them, that he may strengthen them in weakness, comfort them in trials and direct their efforts...We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
