CARITAS Intake Ministry
St. Mark’s is hosting CARITAS Intake NIGHTLY between 5 and 7:30 p.m. from Saturday, July 6th through Friday, August 2nd.
This Intake Ministry provides the CARITAS staff and the shelter women with a valuable in-town check-in space, close to neighborhood resources and the Broad Street bus line.
Additionally, we offer the ladies a congregation from whom to receive fellowship, snacks and cold beverages while awaiting the arrival of the CARITAS bus for transportation to their overnight shelter site.
The Intake Ministry provides congregants with three weeks’ worth of opportunity to contribute light snacks, bottled water or other beverages and/or provide service time in set-up and distribution of snacks to the ladies.
“Keep it Simple” works best for this ministry with fruits, chips, cookies, cupcakes, veggie trays, or cheese and crackers as suggested donations. Get to know the ladies. Get to know your fellow congregants.
A FUN Add-on to CARITAS Intake:
Do you play the piano, the guitar, maybe the violin or electric keyboard? Do you like to sing?
Would you like to join the ladies for a few minutes to provide some “waiting-for-the-bus” music
or lead them in song? Do you like to paint or draw or craft? Perhaps you’d be willing to share your drawings or paintings or “know-how” with the ladies. Maybe host a quick game of bingo?
You (and other talented folks you know) are invited to share your gifts/talents with the ladies as they receive snacks and wait for the overnight bus.
Sign-up to serve snacks or offer your gifts of fellowship to support CARITAS
Talent Offering Sign-up is at the end of the list.
