St. Mary’s Street Ministry is a group that strives to bring unconditional love and spiritual support to vulnerable women, the homeless, and the addicted in the Lower Mainland. Volunteers drive down Kingsway and Seymour streets to reach out to the prostituted women. They go to Hastings and Nanaimo, and downtown area to reach out to the homeless. They also go to the Vancouver Detox Centre to pray over the addicted patients upon request. The volunteers journey with those who have left the street or are in recovery (from addictions) by visiting them, and helping them in their needs. Volunteers have to be non-judgmental and willing to serve Jesus in the marginalized to be ‘lights in the dark’.
