East Harlem Ministry Video and Call for Volunteers

As part of our outreach to the community in East Harlem, on November 20, 2020, the Cabrini Coalition, an interfaith partnership of Brick Church, St. Francis de Sales, and Church of the Living Hope, working with Catholic Charities, provided 120 families with $300 “Cabrini Cards” to be used for food and other necessities. In addition, 150 boxes of food donated by Catholic Charities was distributed to families along with community resource information (VIEW A VIDEO FROM THIS EVENT HERE). As part of the distribution, we asked recipients to fill out a survey and some shared their stories. 77% of recipients had lost their job due to the pandemic, 38% were staying home to care for their children, and the typical recipient lives with their spouse, children, and in some cases, their parents. Brick Church Deacons & members helped with the planning and outdoors distribution. We are planning another outdoor event soon to provide aid. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Chanel Robertson.

Christians believe that God created us for life together and that the Christian life is most faithfully and joyfully lived in the community of faith that is the church. The community of faith sustains, nourishes and challenges us to greater and steadier faithfulness to Jesus Christ. To be a Christian is, for most of us, to be part of a community of Christians.

Prayer and Pastoral Care

One way we demonstrate our faithfulness as a Christian community is by caring for each other. All of our clergy are available to respond to your pastoral care needs. If you have a concern you would like to share with them please contact Chanel Robertson. We also pray together in Sunday worship, in our monthly Healing Service, after worship as part of our Prayer Partners team, monthly with our Prayer Matters prayer group and we also have an online prayer chain.
