March means CARITAS at HRBC! We will serve a group of homeless women as our guests March 15-22. Please set this week aside on your calendar and be considering what ways you as an individual, or family, or class can offer hospitality to our guests. Often this comes in the form of a warm dinner and a friendly face to talk to. But it can also come behind the scenes as a night monitor, laundry washer, or shower coordinator.
Whether this is your first or tenth time to participate in CARITAS, there is a place for everyone. Also know that your presence, any evening, to simply socialize and be a listening ear for our guests, is a ministry in itself. Personal testimony from past CARITAS guests tells us that HRBC is truly a family of caring individuals. These folks have told us that we are one of the few churches that actually interacts with guests throughout the week. It is during these one-on-one times of interaction that our guests feel important and loved. Isn't that exactly what Jesus called us to do?
There will be many ways to get involved, so be looking for the CARITAS sign-ups!
