Fr. Mark Mary Teaches on how to Love and Serve the Poor only on Revive Parishes

Course Introduction

The Gospel calls each of us to love and serve the poor personally, but how can your parish make a difference in your community?

Ministering to people in need can be challenging. From respecting human dignity to creating programs or solutions that genuinely make a difference, many parishes (and Catholics) struggle to find a starting place. This course aims to give your leaders and volunteers a solid foundation to confidently and simply love and serve our brothers and sisters in need throughout your community.

In his course, Fr. Mark-Mary guides viewers through a challenging topic by grounding his teaching in scripture, tradition, and the beautiful teachings of the Church. While sometimes controversial, Fr. Mark-Mary explains the universal call for every parish to establish practical ways to love and serve the poor well…and the impact it will have on your parishioners.
