The Covid-19 pandemic has brought additional challenges to ordinary people living across the world. Carmelite ministries have listened to the needs of the people they live alongside and responded with practical aid and support.

One such project is the Soup Kitchen run by the Missionaries of Charity in New Jersey, USA, which works to provide food directly to those in need in one of the region’s poorest neighborhoods. Over recent years, the project has become even more invaluable due to additional strains on individuals and families caused by the pandemic. Carmelite Brothers from the St. Eliseus Priory in Harrison, New Jersey help regularly at the soup kitchen and saw the need for additional efforts. In addition to their practical support, Carmelites made a financial donation to the cause to ensure the project is able to continue its work. Father Mario Esposito, O.Carm., Prior Provincial, along with Brother Joseph Mary Luong Nguyen, O.Carm., presented the donation to the Sisters leading the project. Due to this contribution, many people will be able to access food and support when they need it most. God bless the work of the Missionaries of Charity and the witness of these Sisters.

It is only with donations from the Society of the Little Flower’s supporters that we can continue to support vital projects such as the brilliant work of the Missionaries of Charity in New Jersey. 

You can make a regular or one off donation here.
