Mission Statement


The Mission of a Simple House is to: wonderfully and radically fall upon the cross of Christ for grace and support; serve the poor, volunteers, and sponsors by proclaiming the gospel through acts of faith, love, and charity; sanctify volunteers through friendship with the Lord, observance of poverty, and obedience to the Holy Catholic Church.

Description


A Simple House is a Catholic lay missionary apostolate that serves the poor in project and section 8 neighborhoods of southeast Washington, DC and in Kansas City, MO. We are a rubber-meets-the-road ministry, busying ourselves with the gritty work of Christ. Our work involves befriending the poor and coming to know them on a personal level. Meeting people in their neighborhoods and in their homes, we strive to meet their spiritual and material needs by delivering groceries, helping new and expectant mothers, conducting bible studies, and inviting them to church. We are staffed entirely by volunteers and supported entirely by private donations.
