Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’ And the King will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’- Matthew 25:34-40
Service of Labor
Using your body to build, paint, dig, etc.
Serves real tangible needs in people’s lives
Usually short on building relationships with people.
Service of Presence
Using yourself to be present to another person and their needs
This can serve a real connection with another human and their needs
This can be an awkward process but can ultimately result in very real impactful relationships
Food For Our Journey collects lunch sacks and hygiene kits every Monday morning in the faculty parking lot throughout the school year!
- Five full lunches (sandwich, salty snack, sweet snack, fruit or fruit cup, and water) = 1 service hour.
- Five full hygiene kits (travel shampoo, travel deodorant, soap/body wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth) = 1 service hour
Can't make it on Monday? FFOJ is blessed to be able to use the Our Lady of Sorrows Family Life Center as a main hub for all their supplies. On Saturday, they are there at 8:30am and back by 1:00pm. On Sunday, they are there at 9:00am and back by 3:00pm (if you want to deliver some lunches).
Come ride with FFOJ and meet the people who benefit from your generosity! They have tons of open dates available for volunteers to go along on the van!. They would love to have Cavalier students participate! Just click here to pick a date!
