The Society of St. Teresa of Calcutta is a Catholic lay organization that gives financial and spiritual support to those in need on a person-to-person basis. They meet with clients in their home to determine immediate needs and to discuss additional community resources that might be beneficial. Aid may take the form of consultation, intervention, or direct financial aid. An essential precept is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served, ever mindful that service to our brothers and sisters in need is in fact a service done to Jesus Himself: In as much as you have done it to one of the least of my brothers, you have done it unto Me. Individuals needing assistance may phone: (979) 836-4441 ext. 122 or (979) 525-0090
The society does not do fundraisers, but depends on a portion of your donations to the Purple Bag, and/or direct donations to the society. To find out more about donating your time, talent, or treasure, contact Shawn Richards at [email protected] or attend one of the monthly meetings which are held at 6:00 p.m. in the PAC on the 1st Monday of each month.
