As a Catholic organization that is rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Edmundite Missions provides food, clothing and shelter to poor and marginalized children and families, young adults and seniors of all faith traditions to meet their immediate needs and helps them address the long term issues of systematic poverty in the Deep South.
The Edmundite Missions serve God's people living in poverty in rural Alabama, a ministry based on the loving Gospel of Jesus Christ. Edmundites have been serving the African-American poor of the Deep South since 1937.
The Edmundite Missions sponsor outreach ministries, including food pantries and feeding programs, elder care, housing replacement and repair, learning and community centers, clothing thrift stores and emergency assistance. Edmundite priests serve parishes in Selma and New Orleans supported by the Missions.
Edmundite Missions also train and employ local people in our ministries.
The Missions are part of the Society of Saint Edmund, a Catholic order of priests and brothers, who seek to serve as Jesus did, and make known His love by basing their lives on humility, service and love for the poor.
