July’s Parish Monthly Outreach - “Project of Mercy” will be on July9, from 9am to 1pm at Haven for Hope. For those that haven’t heard or know what this organization does, its mission is to offer a place of hope and new beginnings. They do this by providing,
coordinating and delivering an efficient system of care for people experiencing homelessness in Bexar County. It is made up of two major programs: the Courtyard and the Transformational Campus. The Courtyard is a low-barrier safe sleeping program that offers shelter and basic needs. The Transformational Campus is a center that offers services and shelter with an emphasis toward addressing the root causes of homelessness. Every night of the week, between 600-800 homeless brothers and sisters utilize the simple comforts provided by Haven for Hope.
Please join us in being a witness to mercy by working together and accomplishing our special acts of mercy projects. The projects consist of “Campus Beautification” which basically means picking up trash and litter around the Transformational Campus. The other project will be cleaning the sleeping mattresses used throughout the Courtyard. Volunteers must be at least 15 years old for the mattresses cleaning; and 18 for the campus cleanup.
If you would like to volunteer, please call/text me @ (210) 845-6695 or email me firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call the Parish Office at 654-1643 to volunteer.
We will meet in the front parking lot of SJN between 8 – 8:15am; and then all caravan and/or carpool to Haven for Hope. We hope to see many of you on Saturday, July 9! Thank you and God bless us all on our “journey of conversion.”
Your Brother in Christ,
Life, Justice & Peace
