Will YOU help?

As Catholic Christians, we are called to help serve the poor, to give drink to the thirsty and food to the hungry.  The Catholic Social Ministries Food Pantry has been doing this since 2006.  Our present building is very outdated and crowded and does not help us serve the needs of the poor.  Will you help us build a new pantry?

We already have $504,000 in the fund. We need to raise another $296,000. 


If you would like to donate to the building fund, please make your check payable to Catholic Social Ministries with “food pantry building fund’ in the memo and on the envelope.  Mail to St. Mary Cathedral 615 William Street, Cape Girardeau, MO 63703 

You can also donate online by scanning the QR code.


Help us feed the hungry, and give drink to the thirsty.
