Outreach at St. Matthias covers a wide variety of activities from global to local efforts. Several members of the parish enjoy sponsoring children around the globe and more importantly communicating with each of them to listen to their story, share their faith and let them know others in the world care about them. Others support a global ministry by supporting the seafarers as they travel the world away from their families and needing some of the basic necessities.
Our major outreach activity for the past twelve years is our Loaves & Fishes program. Starting as a small soup kitchen, Loaves & Fishes has grown to supporting over 130 families a week with groceries while serving even more in our soup kitchen. Serving the Northeast Baltimore area, St. Matthias opens its doors for a few hours every Saturday and provides groceries from our food pantry, a hot meal in our soup kitchen, gently used clothing, and a craft activity for the children.
