At. St. Mary’s House, we believe being a disciple of Jesus calls us away from church buildings into the world, seeking to enact the Kingdom of God in the here and now. That call is prophetic when it leads us to decry injustice. It's incarnational when it leads us to create new structures that uplift others. It's compassionate when it leads us to alleviating suffering.
Members of St. Mary’s House are involved in the following groups and organizations working for justice in our world:
There may be others we have not yet discovered!
While we encourage all members of our community to be directly involved in acts of justice, kindness, & mercy, we also understand that a portion of the money we collect should go towards helping others. Accordingly, we set aside approximately 11% of our budget to be given directly to other non-profit groups. The ministries and programs are nominated by members of our community and voted on at our spring community lunch and meeting. In 2017, the recipient list includes the following:
(Episcopal Seminary in Austin Tx.)
(Serving Children with Life Threatening Illness)
(In Support of the Tuesday Breakfast Program)
(Student run Pantry at UNCG)
(Residence for Adults w/ Special Needs)
(Serving UNCG Students in Recovery from Addictions)
(Homeless Family Shelter)
