Holy Wisdom Inclusive Catholic Community    

SOCIAL JUSTICE & OUTREACH MINISTRY

SOCIAL JUSTICE AND OUTREACH MINISTRIES

Holy Wisdom community members are committed to serving their brothers and sisters locally

and around the world.  

Here are some of our ministries:

COMMUNITY KITCHEN

HOLY WISDOM cooks and serves dinner on the first Monday of every month at The Community

Kitchen in Olympia. We prepare a home cooked meal from scratch, serving meatloaf from locally

raised beef and organic vegetables from local organic farms and HW Community Members' home

gardens. We also decorate the tables with fresh cut flowers. 

PRAYER SHAWL AND QUILT MINISTRY

When someone is suffering due to illness, loss, or other struggles, a prayer shawl or

quilt is a tangible way of letting that person know they are being held in prayer.  Holy

Wisdom Community Members provide prayer shawls and quilts to those in need. 

Those making prayer shawls pray for the one who will receive the shawl with every

stitch and the shawl is blessed by the community before it is given. Prayer quilts are

made with long threads tied to the fabric.  Members of our community bless these

quilt by tying knots in the threads, each knot, a promise of prayer for the recipient

who is in need of support. 

If you'd like to create a prayer shawl for others, you are invited to join the

prayer shawl ministry. Contact Diane F. with any questions.

FOOT CARE MINISTRY IN OLYMPIA AND LOS ANGELES

Holy Wisdom community members provide foot care to homeless men and women at Drexel

House and the Interfaith Warming Center in Olympia. 

Our Washington Clippers, as they are affectionately known, also travel each year to Los  Angeles

to offer foot care to homeless people on Skid Row as well as train the Catholic Workers there to

do foot care. The Holy Wisdom community offers support to our foot care ministers with dona-

tions of money and supplies. 

SOCK COLLECTIONS FOR DREXEL HOUSE

At each mass, Holy Wisdom collects white men's socks, size large and extra-large and women's

socks of all kinds  to distribute to the homeless folks we serve. There is always a great need for

these socks.
