The New American Missionaries Bringing Our 3.5 Million Homeless Home
The first Christmas was all about homelessness, wasn’t it? Jesus left his home in heaven, became a pilgrim on earth and he was born homeless in a manger to a mother and father that had no place to stay.
The Servants of the Father of Mercy roots go back to 2001 and now to this very day, we continue to deliver food, water, clothing, blankets, jackets, socks, shoes, hygiene kits, rosaries, prayer cards and hugs to the poorest of the poor; homeless men, women, children and teens living remotely under bridges and in alleyways. We’re like Dominoes, “We Deliver!”
However, the homeless can’t be served without everyone’s help. Our pickup and delivery van continues to need your help. It has been overworked and overused. In just 5 years the Kia Rondo accrued 200,000 miles, constantly needing expensive major system repairs, gas, oil changes, car washes and more. This holiday season many homeless, along with the elderly we serve in nursing homes, will also receive thousands of dollars in extras such as Subway sandwich dining gift cards, greeting cards, blankets, jackets, live holiday concerts, Christmas gifts and other special deliveries.
In the name of the Father of Mercy, our Patron (picture), we pray that you will bring mercy and compassion alive with a strong financial contribution today! Please make the homeless Jesus a priority in the celebration of your Thanksgiving and Christmas.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." Luke 25:36-35
