Welcoming the Stranger: In Matthew 25 we learn that “I was a stranger and you welcomed me. I was naked and you gave me clothing.” As such, OLV is collecting clothing for undocumented “strangers” from south of the U.S. border. They arrive here with nothing. Donated clothing is given to families with no means of support other than holding garage sales. OLV strives to show hospitality to these recent arrivals.

EVERYONE has a place at this table
