The primary mission of the Brown Bag Ministry is to reach out to those in need. We seek to address the needs of the hungry by preparing and distributing 100 brown bag lunches biweekly to a low-income senior apartment complex in Durham.
The ministry allows all ages in a family to participate. Families pack lunches together, experience brief communal prayer, and have face-to-face contact with people in need. Many types of youth-based parish or non-parish groups can easily participate (Youth Group, Y-Guides, Scouts, etc.). The experience takes about two hours on a Saturday morning.
