“When it was evening, the disciples approached him and said, ‘This is a deserted place and it is already late; dismiss the crowds so that they can go to the villages and buy food for themselves.’ Jesus said to them, ‘There is no need for them to go away; give them some food yourselves’” (Mt. 14:15-16). Thus our Lord challenged His disciples to take some concrete and urgent action to address the immediate need of their brothers and sisters. When they accepted the challenge and began to explore among themselves the possibility of helping the hungry among them, Jesus took over and worked a miracle with their obedience and efforts: the little they could provide.

St. Benedict the Moor Catholic Church for some years now has been operating an OUTREACH COMMUNITY LUNCH PROGRAM. In their own capacity they have been generously trying to help feed the hungry and provide clothes for those who need them. Every Monday and Thursday Ms. Beverly Casimier,  Ms Shirley Dexter, Ms. Dorothy Stewart and Gloria Dolley (not pictured) do all it takes them to get lunch ready for these our brothers and sisters in need. Sometimes a few other people come to help. They serve more than 75 people between 12:00 noon and 12:45 pm each day. Like in the feeding of five thousand, our Lord is using the generous hearts of our parish members to care for these His precious children. All of us are called upon to help the less privileged and when we do we become the hands of Jesus. When we become the hands of Jesus, He is perpetually working His miracles in the world.
