A typical day in this ministry:

Saint Mother Teresa worked hard to be Christ's presence to the poorest of the poor and she did it one person at a time. Everyone, no matter who they are, has been made in the image and likeness of God and God loves them. When she was asked, by the people who visited her in India, what they could do to help, she would say, "Come and see". No training is necessary - we feed some very hungry people. Please don't wait for a special phone call to participate. Just mark your calendar for any first Saturday and be "a pencil in God's hand."
