As a parish, we are committed to helping the less fortunate in many ways and not just in foreign lands. There is a real need closer to home. The main focus of our attention are the two longstanding inititiatives below.
Meals for the Homeless in The Hague
On the second and fourth Friday of each month, a team prepares and serves a 3-course evening meal to their clients at Westeinde 101a, The Hague. There is a short service prior to the meal. Special evenings are also created around St Nicholas and Christmas. Numbers coming for these meals have steadily increased and is now around 100 each time, a testament to all the effort that goes into the preparation and planning. If you would like to help out you are more then welcome. The Coordinator is Mira de Knoop

Missionaries of Charity's Soup Kitchen in Rotterdam
For several years now, a group of volunteers support the Soup Kitchen of the Missionaries of Charity in Rotterdam. Every Tuesday morning at 9.30 a.m. they gather at the Church of Our Saviour to leave together for Rotterdam, where they help the sisters of Holy Mother Teresa with preparing the soup that gets distributed to the city's homeless later that day. The year 2016 was especially festive for this outreach group, as it witnessed the official proclamation of Mother Teresa's sainthood. Do you want to join this volunteer group? Please contact coordinator Shirley Forster through the parish office.
