This ministry helps support a year round program that operates under the umbrella of Mercy House and The Sister’s of St. Joseph. The program rotates to different churches in the Diocese every 2-3 weeks through out the year, serving a maximum of 12 adult men and women at a time in a group setting. The focus of their work is to assist and support those individuals who are looking for employment or presently working, in their goal of saving enough money to achieve their independence. The ministry members then transform the Church Hall into a shelter for 3 weeks during the most treasured time of year at Christmas and New Year’s. In addition, through the generous support of SMDP parishioners, they help feed, provide transportation, along with entertain and comfort these individuals during their time of need. Come and share your time and talent with this ministry!
