Common Cathedral is a weekly worship service outdoors at Collyer Park in Longmont, open to all, but aimed especially at those who call the street their home. SMM volunteers provide and serve a hot meal every month.
We have a community garden on our property where we grow vegetables to donate to local food pantries. Each year we donate hundreds of pounds of organic vegetables to needy families.
SMM parishioners give a significant amount of their time and talent to outreach. Some of these projects include Habitat for Humanity, Community Food Share, and CROP Hunger Walk.
The Colorado Haiti Project partners with rural Haitian communities to support their rise out of extreme poverty. Each year SMM has projects such as the "Konbit Scholarship World Food Tour" fundraiser to support the Colorado Haiti Project.

Haiti Scholarship Fundraiser Continues!
So far, SMM parishioners have generously given 20 Konbit Scholarships for students at St. Paul’s School in Petit Trou. We’re halfway to our goal! Over the next few weeks, the Outreach Committee will continue to raise funds for Konbit scholarships. If you still want to donate but didn’t have a chance yet, please send in a check payable to SMM with “CHP” in the memo line. Each scholarship is $350, and donations of any amount are welcome! Questions? Please contact Mark Christie.
SMM Community Garden Needs Volunteers!
The community garden is asking for more team members. We are looking forward to a very productive garden; last year we delivered hundreds of pounds of organic produce to food banks! Contact: Barb Beaton
