This week’s Poor Box is designated for the Loaves & Fishes Ministry – dedicated to providing a nourishing weekend meal to the homeless and poor of Baltimore City and create an opportunity for fellowship for homeless patrons and ministry volunteers, trying to understand and live out the Gospel challenge of Matthew 25.
During the cold winter months, the ministry provides an evening meal every Saturday and Sunday night, consisting of sandwiches (approx. 250), hot soup (7 gallons), 2 cases of fresh fruit (generally oranges and bananas), coffee, and a sweet snack. While numbers vary from week to week, the feeding program will serve meals to 150 to 175 patrons each Saturday and Sunday evening. From late spring through early fall, sandwiches, fruit, snacks and bottled water are provided on Sunday nights. To learn more about the Loaves & Fishes Ministry, CLICK HERE.
To contribute, the Poor Box is located in the narthex of the church at the bottom of the choir loft stairs.
