St. Martin de Porres

Feeding the Homeless - First Monday of every month November 2020 to March 2021
St. Martin de Porres Ministry will once again feed the homeless men of Central Night Shelter. Unfortunately, the men will not be able to stay overnight due to Covid, but the hope is that there will be limited overnight guests beginning in January. We will still feed them a hot meal each month beginning Monday, November 9. They will be served outside in the parking lot of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in a grab-and-go setup on the following dates:

- November 9
- December 7
- January 4
- February 1
- March 1 

How to help: If you would like to contribute food, please go to Perfectpotluck.com. The coordinator name is Lashley and the password is stmartin.

The food can be brought to the parish hall kitchen on Sunday during Mass times or on Monday between 3:00 and 4:00 PM. Thank you!


OUR MISSION

St. Martin de Porres Ministry's mission is to fulfill the Gospel message of seeing Christ in those who are needy, suffering or lonely. We are the umbrella ministry for our parish outreach work.  
Our ministry work includes:

  • Serving the homeless at Central Night Shelter from November through March.
  • Supporting Homestretch, a program in North Fulton county that provides housing, mentoring, and life-skills training for formerly homeless families. 
  • Providing volunteer drivers for our church bus which transports the elderly to 2 Masses every weekend. 
  • Organizing our Giving Tree Program which assists parish and community families with Christmas gifts.
