Every Single Day – Blessing Bag Ministry

"I dream of a church that distinguishes itself not by its clothing but by its love of others." – Ricardo Joel Gómez Osnaya Every single day Saint Miriam clothes the naked, anoints the sick, and feeds the hungry. Every single day out doors are flung wide open to anyone who wishes to come. Every single day our altars welcome the sinner, the mournful, the lost and the rejected. Every single day we care more for them, than us. We are love! We are the church!
