Ministry to the Poor at the Rebuild Center

“Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me!”  (Mt. 25:40)

One of our most important ministries in Good Shepherd Parish is cooking for those who are homeless, and then serving them at the Rebuild Center on Tulane Avenue.  I’ve been acquainted with the Rebuild Center for years because my Mother cooks for them once a month.  In the parish we cook every other Wednesday in the morning, and then we serve the following day for the noon meal.  In 2013 we served 3,050 meals at the Rebuild Center, and we are on track to surpass that in 2014!  Below is the email I received from Dan LeBlanc about last week:

Yesterday was a good day for the guests at the Rebuild Center.  Our cooking team on Wednesday did a great job, and a word of thanks to them: Dana, Becky, Dorothy, Hunter, and Dan.  Again another thank you to those who helped serve:  Dorothy, Dana,  Joyce, Dominic, Mark, Anna, Laura, Alice, Gayle, Hunter and Dan.

We served 192 guests a meal of Red Beans, Rice, Sausage, and a Green Salad.”

God bless our volunteers!  If you can help, call the office!
