Missions of Mercy Texas Projects
"Rich and poor have a common bond: the Lord is the maker of them all"
Missions of Mercy (MOM) seeks out the poor and underserved within the State of Texas and assesses each project so that all CDA members have the opportunity of sharing their time, talent, and treasure with those who are in need.
The main objective of the MOMS committee is to engage Texas Catholic Daughter members, and courts, in a "hands on" approach to the needs within in our state. Listed below are the four MOM projects. Adopt one or all, and get INVOLVED! We suggest contacting the mission, ask what their immediate and long term needs are. Then be creative in your approach to collect the needed items, and actually visit the mission. It is definitely an "eye opener". If a visit is not possible, items can be mailed by UPS. Check with a MOMS chairmen to see who is making a visit. You may have the opportunity to join your sisters in a joint project or deliver your donations to them.
Along with these missions, each court or district is encouraged to seek out your own "mission of mercy". We suggest adopting a family, monthly birthday parties at a living assistance center, cooking a meal a month at a homeless shelter, passing out water to the homeless on a hot day, assisting in a pregnancy program; each court is aware of needs in their immediate area. Appoint an enthusiastic chairman to come up with ideas on how to become an active MOMS court. It is up to all of us to help those who have not.

We respectfully suggest that your court host a fundraiser specifically for MOMS and donate the proceeds to your favorite project(s). Along with these four missions, each court or district is encouraged to seek out their own "mission of mercy" project, one that meets and responds to the needs of your parish community and outreach ministry.
Suggestions can include projects like adopting a family; monthly birthday parties at a living assistance center; cooking a meal a month at a homeless shelter; passing out water to the homeless on a hot day; assisting in a pregnancy program or hosting a Baby Shower; or having a monthly craft day at a day care or assisted living center. The list of opportunities is endless and comes alive with the amazing ideas of your Court Members!
Each court is aware of needs in their immediate area. Appoint an enthusiastic chairman (cochairs) to come up with ideas on how to become an active MOMS court.
"If someone has worldly means, and sees his brother in need, and closes his heart against him (refuses him compassion), how can the love of God remain in him? Children, let us not love in word and speech, but in deed and truth."

"Whoever does not provide for relatives, and especially for family members, has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever."
1 Timothy 5:8
Responding to the Word of God and to a need for support and service to the less fortunate, the confused, and the suffering, this committee was formed to work along the lines of the state and national projects. Texas has gone above and beyond the norm to extend the hand of God to those in need. Please join us in “Unity and Charity” as we serve our brothers and sisters in Christ.
"Tell them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous, ready to share…"
