As Intentional Catholics we are called to practice Corporal Works of Mercy. 

Join us Thursday evening  August 25 for a night of service to the homeless and working poor. We will be teaming up with Nightlight Tulsa. Nightlight Tulsa is an outreach ministry with the mission of Lighting up Tulsa through Loving Individuals, Giving Hope and Touching Souls. They accomplish their mission by serving hot meals and providing essentials such as soap, deodorant, first aid, clothing, and foot washing.

Nightlight Tulsa serves approximately 200 homeless and low income individuals. They welcome volunteers of all ages.  This is a great opportunity for families to serve together.
