Every Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening volunteers run the DCM Homeless Ministry.
Bags of tea, soup, sandwiches, chocolate bars, fruit, jumpers, socks and gloves are prepared. We pray together and then go out in teams of three to offer love, encouragement and practical help to those who are sleeping on the streets in and around Abbey Street.
Ongoing training and support is given to all our volunteers.
If you would like to find out more or provide support in any way please get in touch.
Donations of hats, gloves, socks, underwear and chocolate biscuits are all most gratefully received and can be left in the reception in Abbey Street.
Mary and Geraldine volunteer to help with the DCM Homeless Ministry and recently they spoke to Spirit Radio about their experiences.
Listen back to their interview below.
Recently Mary visited 6th class at Our Lady of Victoria School, Ballymun, to talk about the DCM Homeless Ministry. As part of their preparation for confirmation they kindly raised €90 and bought 150 pairs of socks! Everyone at DCM was delighted with the donation and really grateful for their support.
Pictured with Mary are all the pupils of 6th class.
We were also very grateful for the support of the Justice and Peace Group of 5th year and Transition year students at Loreto Secondary School Balbriggan. During her visit, the girls heard from Mary about our work, asked great questions and helped put together sanitary packs that are distributed to the women we serve.
On top of a large donation of sanitary supplies, these passionate and interested young women had raised a fantastic €200 to donate to the work of the DCM homeless ministry. These gifts will make a big difference - thank you girls!
