Mission of Mercy “MOM” Project
The Mother Teresa's Sisters, Missionaries of Charity, Dallas, serve the poorest of the poor, both spiritually and monetarily. They provide essential foods to over 400 families per month, all of whom have been carefully screened by the Sisters to ensure that they are truly in need. Each week bags are filled with rice, beans, flour, fresh fruits, vegetables and breads purchased with donations or brought by individuals and organizations.
The Sisters also maintain the Our Lady of Guadalupe Maternity Shelter for homeless pregnant women by providing a safe place to rest while protecting the lives of their unborn babies. After giving birth, the mothers are helped to start anew in the outside world.
The Sisters of Charity teach catechism classes and summer programs at the St. James Parish in Dallas. They help many students prepare for school by obtaining school supplies and new shoes. It is not unusual to see many of the students helping the Sisters with the work of serving the many in need. The Sisters provide Thanksgiving turkeys and children’s Christmas parties with gifts for entire families that would have nothing otherwise. The Sisters count on Divine Providence to bring them the things they need.
All CDA courts are invited to participate in this most worthy cause.
