LIVING THE GOSPEL
COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF SARASOTA FLORIDA
Areas of Impact
Mary Mother of Jesus has proudly supported the Community Foundation through our quarterly contributions. The three key areas of impact are Community Care, Empowerment and Success, and Belonging and Culture that guide their work to unite people and organizations, to create opportunities for families across generations, to improve their lives through cultural, educational, economic, and social support.
Members of Mary Mother of Jesus work with Sarasota United for Responsibility and Equity (S.U.R.E.) an organization made up of 19 congregations unite to form a powerful voice to press for necessary change in the Sarasota like affordable housing for low income and restorative justice practices in schools in place of out of school suspensions.
Our pastoral care members visit the sick and elderly to offer comfort and liturgy.
Before Covid, Bishop Bridget Mary’s daily ministry was to feed the homeless. She looks forward to getting back to it soon. Our members also support this ministry by contributing to feeding the hungry and housing the homeless. We work with other faith communities to present and discuss topics that divide us, God’s beloved, and search for ways to create unity and equity.
