Social Mission

Today in the shrine, the proclamation of the Word from the pulpit is complemented by social services which try to address the concrete day to day problems of the people, especially the abandoned poor. Social workers are on hand on a full time basis to respond to the various needs of the "walk-ins" who come to the shrine for every imaginable type of assistance. Among the more common types of financial assistance given are: for medical treatment, hospitalization, medicines, food, clothing, transportation, funeral, etc.

The employment of a capable laypersons for these works make good sense. Not only do they have the professional skills to deal with these people, but it also avoids the paternalistic-dependent relationship that is invariably present when it is a priest or religious who responds to them.

Take time to read more about our programs and services.  We would be glad to hear from you if you have questions and inquiries.
