Community Care and Outreach Ministries

“From this time forward, Christ has no body on earth but yours; no hands but yours; no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which His compassion will look upon the world; yours are the feet with which he will go about doing good; yours are the hands with which He will bless others.” – St. Teresa of Avila
