Remembering Our Veterans

Our Lady of Grace Outreach Ministry requests your help in maintaining our relationship with the Loch Raven VA Medical Center. The medical center offers specialized inpatient, outpatient and primary care services. It also offers hospice and nursing home care to Veterans requiring non-acute inpatient care, in addition to offering specialized assistance for patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

Through your support we provide:

  • Lunch and dessert during their annual Spring Art Show
  • Seasonal fresh fruit deliveries throughout the summer months
  • Thanksgiving desserts

Our annual collection will take place after Masses on May 26 and 27. Outreach members will be at the back of church with baskets for your offering as you exit after each Mass. Please consider contributing as your generosity is one way to show your thanks and support to the Veterans who have sacrificed so much for us. Thank you in advance for your generosity and God bless you for all you do.

Food Pantry Outreach

The month of May is a great month—full of wonderful holidays we celebrate! We celebrate Mothers, teachers, nurses, Memorial Day and so many more! Some fun holidays we celebrate are beverage day, hoagie day, chocolate chip day, hamburger day and eat what you want day. There are many our friends and neighbors that are not so lucky to and do not have enough on their shelves. Please consider helping our fellow community members by donating to the food pantry. Both pantries need the following:

Coffee 

Tea

Cleaning Products

Paper Products (Paper Towels—Toilet Paper)

Our donation box is located next to the Nursery. Our volunteers pick up from there and distribute to each of the pantries. Every  donation is greatly appreciated!  Thank you to everyone for helping our community.

~  Thank you, Your Food Pantry Ministry Volunteers

 Clothing Outreach

Our Lady of Grace Outreach members are currently assisting in the collection and organization of clothing and household goods at Assisi House. 

Ministering to those in need in Baltimore City with free clothing and food, Assisi House is located at St. Patrick’s Church in Fells Point.

These community members are in dire need of items you may have too many of, which can help them meet their basic needs.

Each month, we will collect some specific items which are needed, helping you minimize and simply your life in the process.

May 2018 Collection

Men’s summer shorts, belts and shoes (all types)

Women’s summer shorts, belts, shoes(summer styles and sandals only) , purses

Items may be gently used and should be clean.  

No other items  are being collected at this time, so please do not leave anything else.

Please leave your donations in plastic/paper bags near the fireplace in the bins at the back of the Gathering Space by May 31, 2018

Thank you for helping us help those in need in Baltimore City!
