OUR LADY OF ROSE HILL MINISTRIES
Our Lady of Rosehill Ministries was established 14 years ago to serve the poor and marginalized through the living of the corporal and spiritual works of mercy in daily life. We have brought people from Nigeria for medical treatment, bring medical treatment to undocumented immigrants, provided funding on emergency basis for shelter, donated clothing, taught immigrants to read and write their natal languages and English also. We have served 50,000 meals as well. We evaluate what the Lord puts before us in the light of the works of mercy and Catholic Social teaching.
The works of mercy are:
7 Pillars of Catholic Social Teaching:
Life and dignity of every human being from natural conception to natural death
Call to Family, community and participation
Rights and responsibilities
Preferential Option for the poor and vulnerable
Dignity of Work and Rights of Workers
Care for God's Creation
You can see how Maggie's House fits in several of these!
