OUTREACH MINISTRY

Our outreach ministry meets the fourth Saturday at 9:30 am in Mary Help Classroom next to the stairway.

We meet one Saturday of the month here at MHC classroom next to the stairs to prepare food, toiletries, cloth, bibles, rosaries, and outreach signs then we go to Catholic Charities on Busch Boulevard Immigration Office and Pregnancy Support Center is open. Our mission is to spread the word of God and we pray for justice and hope.

What do we do when we meet in MHC classroom?

We make toiletries bag with Shampoo & conditioner, body wash, deodorant, shave cream, razor, toothpaste, tooth brush, lotion, hand sanitizer, and soap. Also we prepare sandwiches and coolers with drinks; when we finish load our MHC Bus with what we just made and drive to 2021 E. Busch Boulevard Tampa, FL 33612.

What do we do when we arrived?

We arrange a table with our food and stuff in front of the main entrance; then we setup our 3 signs with messages such as “Free Food”, “God loves you!”, “Stop and Pray”, and a “Mary Help of Christians 6400 east Chelsea St.”; then we invite the people that is in the waiting room inside the building also the people walking in the side walk on Bush Boulevard.
