St John the Merciful Neighborhood Outreach

Patron,
St John the Merciful
Patriarch of Alexandria

You distributed your wealth to the poor / and in return obtained wealth from heaven, John the Merciful. Therefore, we honor you and celebrate your memory, O namesake of mercy.

A valuable and
rewarding service
to our neighbors

In order to reach out to the surrounding community and those in need, three meals are served weekly to anyone who comes to the church annex.

Through the Food Panty, a bag of groceries is also distributed on a consistent basis to those who attend the lunches or who request them.

The hot lunch provides a nutritious meal and a place to socialize where they feel welcome.

In return, some have become regulars at our Sunday fellowship, where they enjoy receiving a hot cup of coffee and a welcoming word from parishioners. Some attend church services on a regular or occasional basis.

The presence of our neighboring friends allows us to do God’s work in taking care of the needy, while providing a valuable and rewarding service to our neighbors.
