Cathedral Steps toolkit

This is a simple and engaging way to begin a work of the Order, and to help those in need in our own community. The Order of Malta Cathedral Steps project is a work of the Order of Malta, which aims to provide a breakfast for the homeless community after Mass each Sunday. As well as breakfast, the project provides an opportunity for guests to gather in a warm and hospitable environment, helping to reduce the sense of isolation and marginalisation that many experience everyday.The Order of Malta Cathedral Steps project provides support for any member or volunteer of the Order of Malta to initiate a work of the Order in their own community or parish. The initiation of the project provides volunteering opportunities for those wishing to serve the poor under the charism of the Order.
