DAUGHTER OF CHARITY IN MACON DOING WHAT POPE FRANCIS ASKS OF RELIGIOUS, OF THE CHURCH IN GENERAL, SERVING THE POOR, THOSE ON THE MARGINS OF SOCIETY

Macon, Georgia is blessed to have the Daughters of Charity in our community. There are five who live in the convent of Saint Peter Claver Church. One is the principal of the historically African American parish school. One is the director of Family Advancement Ministries that helps young parents, young families who are poor, not only with monetary assistance but with education in a number of related fields.

Sister Elizabeth Grim directs a new ministry in Macon, a project of DePaul, USA. It is called DAYBREAK and it assists the homeless during the day with a variety of services. Sister Elizabeth has rallied the entire community of Macon and all the religions that are here to support this inner-city ministry to the poorest of the poor in Macon. Thus the Daughters of Charity as well as DePaul USA are doing what Pope Francis envisions as one aspect of the Church's ministry to those on the margin, those who are poor.
