San Felipe meals Holy Rosary Soul Core Sister ironing masks

In addition to livestreaming Masses, Marist parishes offered additional services for parishioners. Holy Rosary Parish (Buckhannon, WV) held SoulCore workouts, uniting body, mind, & soul in prayer, on their Facebook page. At San Felipe de Jesús (Brownsville, TX), meals were prepared and made available to people 60 years or older three days a week. In addition, parishioners volunteered in providing groceries to those in the community through the parish food bank.

Sisters at Marist Center in Washington, DC made masks for healthcare workers and others. Marist Seminarian Nik Rodewald, along with other musician friends, raised money to benefit those living and working in homeless shelters in Washington, DC during the COVID-19 crisis.
