No Hands But Yours | Helping Hands Needed!

“Christ has no body now but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours”
-St Teresa of Ávila

No Hands But Yours is an original Nativity ministry that serves the poor and homeless in our local community.  Service opportunities include serving food in-person, preparing food, and/or donating.  Learn more on our Nativity webpage!

We need your Helping Hands!

With winter now upon us, our ministry needs more drivers (to commit to drive once every 6 weeks) and parishioners who are willing to provide bagged lunches (we currently distribute 160-200 lunches and 96+ rolls of toilet paper as well as five to six cases of water weekly). If you want to help, please contact Manuel Ponciano at 202-262-6659 or email

If you can’t spare your time right now, you can financially contribute to the “No Hands But Yours” ministry (donate here) or help by preparing the food and supplies that are a vital role in this ministry.  We accept any food/adult winter clothing items after morning Mass throughout the week.  For those wishing to lend us a hand in providing needed items, check out our Signup Genius form.  Simply scroll on the form to see what’s needed and when, check the one(s) that work for you, and then hit the orange “Submit and Sign-Up” button at the end of the page.

Do you know someone outside of Nativity who is interested in serving the homeless?  Screenshot or share this page with them and invite them to join you!  You do not need to be a Nativity parishioner to serve with us.
