Charity/Outreach

“Because we cannot see Christ we cannot express our love to him; but our neighbors we can always see, and we can do for them what, if we saw him, we would like to do for Christ.”  [Mother Teresa]

“Christ has no body but yours, no hands, no feet on earth but yours.  Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassion on this world; yours are the feet with which he walks to do good; yours are the hands with which he blesses all the world.  Christ has no body now on earth but yours.” [St. Teresa of Avila]


As Catholic Christians, we believe that we are called to be the living Body of Christ in a world in need and that involvement in ministry is a response to our baptismal call.  Our Incarnation community is known throughout Charlottesville for our compassionate and generous response to those in need.  Please explore the links at left for more information on how to reach out to our brothers and sisters within and beyond our parish.
