"If we are not marginalized ourselves in some way, we normally need to associate with some marginalized group to have an enlightened Gospel perspective and to be converted to compassion."  (Richard Rohr)

Jesus' own words tell us to feed the hungry and shelter the homeless.  And shouldn't we be especially responsive to the children and families in our own community of Fort Collins?

We invite all to join us in this rewarding ministry.
