“When you did it for the least of these, my brothers and sisters, you did it for me.” (Mt 25) Strong and
challenging words from Jesus as he exhorts us, his disciples, to witness to our faith in practical ways before
the world. Outreach to the poor, the needy, the sick, and the vulnerable in our society has always been an
important and central part of our response to the Gospel message. Our social ministry is varied and active
with abundant opportunities to fulfill this holy task.
