St. Lucy's Outreach Ministries
Saint Lucy's is home to several ministries devoted to helping our community by providing nutritional support, low-cost clothing from the Agape Shop, and much more
Our mission at the pantry is to respond to God's call to share bread with brothers and sisters from St. Lucy's neighborhood with kindness and respect. Because of the negative stereotypes and judgments associated with asking for help, it is much easier to give away food than it is to receive food. Therefore we seek to welcome all who come through our doors and to offer them hospitality. We want them to be able to make choices much as they do at a grocery store.

bread of life
Bread of Life offers a nutritious, homemade lunch to anyone hungry for food and/or friendship. Our goal is to develop deeper ties of trust and communication in the simple acts of preparing and sharing a meal together. Through this commitment to relationships we seek to help people find power and hope within themselves and within their community.
