If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. (Isaiah 58:10)
Believing that every human being is a child of God and should therefore be treated with kindness and dignity, we look for opportunities to support our homeless brothers and sisters in Christ.
Our Daily Bread - On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Wednesday of each month a group of volunteers go to Our Daily Bread (a day shelter for the homeless in Galveston) to prepare, serve and clean up lunch. We meet at Mary Queen at 8:30 AM and return around 1:00 PM.
Loaves and Fishes - Our parish joins other churches in the Friendswood community and help serve at the Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen in downtown Houston. Our parish has the 1st Tuesday of the month. Two groups of parishioners go once a month to serve a noon-time meal to the homeless. Persons 16 years and older are welcome to join with proper permission and authorization. Please contact Mary Anastas at 281-482-8580 for more information on how you can help at Loaves and Fishes.
All Mary Queen parishioners are welcome to volunteer for either or both groups.
