Social Services

Jesus commands us to feed the hungry, give drink to those who thirst, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick, ransom the captive and bury the dead. The St. Paul of the Cross Social Service Ministry is committed to respond to the needs of all people with compassion, in light of our Gospel values and true discipleship. Our ministries, programs and services are based on the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.
