Our Essential Elements

Spirituality. Friendship. Service.


Inspired by Gospel values, we grow spiritually through person to person service to all in need in our community. 

Our actions promote the dignity of the person, alleviate suffering and distress, while addressing the conditions that cause them through systemic change. 


We are a community actively living our faith by loving and providing hope to our neighbors.


We work to end poverty throughout the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston one family at a time.
