‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine you did for me.’ Matthew 24:40
Inspired by Gospel values our outreach is a ministry of Mission Basilica Parish dedicated to serving the physical and social needs of individuals and working families of our parish and community. We offer assistance to those in need through various programs, such as Serra's Food Pantry, elderly assistance programs, youth focused camp programs and consultation programs to our brothers and sisters who are struggling due to personal or family crisis. Through our actions and our community focused programs our ministry is dedicated to living out our Lord, Jesus Christ's central message of love especially for those in our community who have the greatest need.

Serra’s Pantry and Outreach Ministry is taking precautions during the outbreak of the (COVID-19) coronavirus. The health of our families and volunteers continue to be our priority. To mitigate this health risk, beginning Thursday, March 19, 2020 our pantry will close until conditions warrant reopening.
Although our grocery rescue operation will be closed we will continue to provide food to the homeless and to those elderly/disabled “shut ins” who do not have family. Our outreach efforts will also continue and business will be done through phone and email serving as a support and referral site.
Family and friends who wish to help us can make donations online to Serra’s Pantry and Outreach Ministry through our Mission Basilica Website at www.missionparish.org. Cash or check donations cam be made to Serra’s Pantry & Outreach and either dropped off at the Parish Office or mailed to MBSJC 31520 Camino Capistrano San Juan Capistrano CA 92675. To continue to assist the most vulnerable financial support is greatly needed. It’s important we come together and support one another as a community during this time of uncertainty.
May God Bless us with His Grace and Peace during this difficult time.
