“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me."

Matthew 25:35-36

Who we are

Called together to live a life of faith, prayer, and agape love, we are striving to be a Christian family. We work together, have fun together, struggle and grow together. Obedient to the Roman Catholic Church and attentive to discernment, we seek to live in service to our brothers and sisters in need by practicing the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.

How can you help?

Alone we could never do this but as a body of believers working together, we can do so much more. As Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, “You can do what I cannot do. I can do what you cannot do. Together we can do great things.”

Our Founder

Fr. Richard M. Thomas, S.J.

The Jesuit priest who served as Executive Director of Our Lady's Youth Center for over 40 years and who founded the lay community that carries on that work today.
