Making a Difference
Nick Leider, Director of Homeless Adult Services for Catholic Community Services will share information on existing resources for the homelessnd ideas on how Saint Patrick Catholic Church & School might become more responsive to those living on the streets.
Responding to Needs
Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world.
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good.
Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.Teresa of Ávila
Our Scriptures and our Catholic Social Teaching remind us of our call to care for all of God’s creation. But everyday we see stories about the homeless, the hungry, the victimized and we know we must do something but we don’t know what to do. The needs seem immeasurable and we ask ourselves if we can really make a difference. What are the issues? What are the needs? What can I do?
Join us on December 4, 2017 at 7 P.M. in the Parish Center at Saint Patrick Catholic Church, 1001 North J Street, Tacoma to continue the conversation. RSVP today.
