Volunteering at Mary's Mercy Center brings to mind the Servanthood of Our Lord Jesus. Jesus tells us that there is no greater work than serving one another.  He set the example for us and instructed us that humility is at the heart of serving. Here at Mary's Mercy Center, you have a chance to experience the kind of Servanthood that Jesus talks about. We have three beliefs concerning our service:

  • Never judge the persons we serve;
  • Always strive to see Jesus in the persons we serve;
  • Treat those we serve as if they were a guest in your home;
  • In serving, we receive more than we give.

There are flexible hours and days to choose from: We are open for full service to the poor and homeless four days a week - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Weekends we are open for lunch only. You can chose to work all day or just the morning or afternoon schedule. We are closed on Fridays.

Volunteers range in age from the young to seniors. Many private schools bring their youth to volunteer to complete the requirement of Service Hours as part of their curriculum.
