Loving our West End Neighbours ...

It's a new year, filled with love.

At St. Matthews Maryland Community Ministry, we are busy loving our neighbours.

It is cold outside, but there is plenty of warmth here:

Open hearts listen with care.  Open mouths speak affirmation. 
Open minds teach a skill.  Open hearts give generously to make it all possible.
