Victor's Vittles food pantry has helped serve our community since June 1999. Our facility is located in the rear of the parking lot at Christus Victor and our service area are zip codes 21234, 21236, 21286. Not only do we help those in need who come to the pantry for assistance, we also facilitate a way for those who want to volunteer in a worthwhile cause to do so. We are listed with the Baltimore County School System and Court System as an approved location to earn community service hours.

The pantry relies on donations to maintain the increasing numbers of families who come for help. We get weekly food donations from local food stores, and individuals. Churches, schools, and various organizations, such as the Boy Scouts, are consistent in their support.

The number of scheduled volunteers fluctuates, so new volunteers are always encouraged to step forward. Our hours of operation are 9:00-11:30am. on Saturday. Anyone wanting further information or would like to make perishable and non-perishable donations can contact the church office.

New Beginnings of Hope

The New Beginnings of Hope Group is a 12 Step Program of AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) who meet at Christus Victor weekly. They come together to discuss and help each other cope with the effects of alcohol on themselves and their families, and to understand the disease known as alcoholism.

 

There are no dues or fees associated with belonging to the group, but a collection basket is passed at each meeting to help defray the expenses of coffee, snacks (which are served at each meeting) and a donation to the church for the use of the hall. The group is open to anyone who feels they have a problem with alcohol in any way and wishes to seek help regardless of race, creed or sex.

 

Feel free to come to a meeting if you are interested and meet with a group of people whose only purpose is to stay sober and help others to learn a better way of life. Our group normally meets weekly on Fridays's at 7:00pm, but check the Events Calendar for the latest schedule.

Christus Comforters

Christus Victor's Quilters
Christus Comforters busy at work.

Christus Comforters meet each Tuesday morning from 9:30am to noon to make quilts for those in need. We welcome anyone who wishes to join in the fellowship of working together. There are many components to the making of a quilt, such as color coordination, planning, cutting, serging and sewing. Or you can just join us for fellowship, you do not need to sew.
