Social Outreach Ministries

The Gospel is challenging. It calls us to respond to the needs of people around us. Jesus reminds us:

"I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me… whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me." — Mt 25: 34–40

Pope Francis 1

Being followers of Jesus means taking up his mission of bringing “good news to the poor, liberty to captives, and new sight to the blind.” (cf. Lk 4:18) As baptized Christians, we are all called to serve those in need, and work for justice and peace. As brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ we are called to serve others, to put our faith in him into action. One can not sit on the sidelines and think that it is enough just to attend Mass on Sundays, or even that it is okay. 

The Social Outreach Ministries at St. Thomas More are but a few of the excellent opportunities provided for everyone to ensure that the Gospel's we proclaim as follower of Jesus Christ is fulfilled in our daily actions.
