“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’… ‘And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for Me.”
Matthew 25: 35-36:40
As disciples of Jesus, we all share in the same mission… in our personal lives, at home, work, school, and church, we strive to be a community of Living Faith, Changing Lives, and Making a Difference.
At SJV we believe that service to others is at the core of discipleship. SJV’s Social Services Ministry’s goal is to act on Catholic Social Teaching and our commitment to the Corporal Works of Mercy by providing a compassionate response to those parishioners and families in our community in need of assistance.
We also provide opportunities for parishioners to get involved and to answer God’s call to grow in faith by sharing their unique gifts and talents while serving and reaching out to those in need.
Our ministry is part of the continuous support that St. John Vianney Catholic Church provides to the surrounding community and its parishioners. It is simply one more way of continuing our vision of Living Faith, Changing Lives and Making a Difference!
“So we, though many, are one body in Christ and individually parts of one another” (Romans 12:5).
