"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
Matthew 25:35 NIV
New Orleans Street Choir (NOSC)
The New Orleans Street Choir ministry, under the direction of Michael Martin, provides a creative space for all who share in our meal ministry. Through the beauty of music, the NOSC exists to enhance the dignity, worth, and humanity of all who walk through the doors of St. Mark's. As Michael says, "Regardless of what life might look like on the outside, once inside all will know they are honored, valued, and loved not only by St. Mark's but, most importantly, God."
Make A Food Bag
Churches and organizations are invited to support our outreach ministry by making food bags. Bags are distributed to the hungry who visit us in need of help. Food bags are filled with nonperishable food and drink items, Scripture and information about the church.
Together New Orleans
St. Mark’s is a founding member of Together New Orleans, a faith-based organizing network that works for solutions to the city and state’s biggest problems. Together New Orleans is the largest grassroots organization in Louisiana history, representing more than 200,000 people.
Each Sunday, following worship, members of St. Mark's, along with her mission partners and her meal guests, gather in the sanctuary for a time of Table fellowship. The heart of this ministry is one that reflects the heart of Jesus when He looked upon the masses and was moved deeply with compassion. St. Mark's, in harmony with her generous meal ministry partners, looks upon those with whom we serve with deep compassion.
We remember the victims who have been affected by senseless violence.
"I get to meet people from all walks of life. It enriches my life greatly."
