The Silence of Mary Home.

September 10, 2023

9:30 AM—completed    Leo Hall


Founded by Sue and Very Rudy in 1999, The Silence of Mary Home is committed to serving Jesus in the chronically poor, whether they live within The Silence of Mary family homes, or in the inner cities of Harrisburg. Working closely with other agencies, they identify individuals that do not have a home or place to go due to mental illnesses or other impairment, or physical disabilities. They may be on a housing list, timed out of a shelter, or kicked out of the home in which they were staying. They are both young and old; they may stay for a short time or for years.  Once a person is a member of The Silence of Mary family, regardless of their living situation, they remain in contact. For many, The Silence of Mary has become a resource for life.

To assist in their mission, we are collecting personal hygiene items throughout July and August.

Needed items include sample size:

  • Shampoo
  • Lotions (hand or body)
  • Shaving cream
  • Toothpaste
  • Soap
  • Deodorant

Other needs include toothbrushes, razors, and washcloths, toilet paper. 

On Saturday, September 11, 2021, we will participate in the National Day of Service and Remembrance by sorting and assembling these items into personal comfort kits, which will be distributed by The Silence of Mary Home.   Click here to sign up today!
