Wednesday Eucharist and Breakfast
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, our normal Wednesday morning breakfast and Eucharist has been cancelled. Each Wednesday morning Constance Abbey is providing a hot sausage biscuit breakfast to go to our unsheltered neighbors, starting at 8am.
We pray that at some time when we can safely gather, we will be able to resume the Wednesday morning Eucharist and Community Breakfast at least in some form.
Pop Top Ministry
Each Saturday at 9:00 am, those in need gather to receive a to-go meal of pop top items (vienna sausage, sardines, fruit cups, water bottle, single-serve chips, cookies, etc). Donations are welcome. Contact Drew Woodruff for specific items needed or to assist.
Servant Ministry Team
St. Mary's Servant Ministry Team has partnered with the St. Mary's MICAH (Memphis Interfaith Coalition for Action and Hope) team and so offers a diverse choice of ministries:
Downtown Elementary School-tutoring in reading, back-to-school Incentive Reward Extravaganza, Christmas Angel Tree and Undie Sunday
Volunteering for Constance Abbey and Pop-Tops
MICAH is a coalition of community and faith-based organizations joining together to give a more powerful voice for issues of justice in our city. Our current platform concentrates on three pillar issues, economic equity, education equity, and immigration & intercultural equity. We organize and speak to our community and its leaders, always seeking to "do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God."
