Words That Inspire. Deeds That Transform.
"Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me." — Matthew 25:40 (NRSV, extracted from our mandate 25:37-40)

We take our mandate from the words of Jesus, found in Matthew 25:37-40, that call us to feed the hungry, care for the sick and welcome the stranger.
