We serve our brothers and sisters in Christ's name.
We believe that service must extend outside our church community to our neighbors in need.

"I am the Vine, you are the branches..."  

The Branches Outreach is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Their Mission is to provide services and programs for the relief of the poor, distressed, and underprivileged residents of Cape May County and to provide the daily needs of their guests with dignity and respect.

St. Mary's founded The Branches Outreach in Rio Grande in 2007. The Branches Outreach has grown substantially since then operating a center and food pantry to serve the poor, those experiencing homelessness and the lonely of Cape May County, assisting them to find the means to advance their lives by connecting them to resources and services. The Center offers a safe place for friendship and socialization, and simple comfort meals five days per week and the Food Pantry offers groceries to clients three days a week. In 2019, St. Mary's created a 501(c)(3) non-profit to enable and encourage support for and involvement with The Branches Outreach to expand beyond our church and into the greater Cape May County religious and charitable community. The success of this decision has enabled The Branches to far surpass our church's original vision.
