The Brady Faith Center is an urban mission on the southwest side of Syracuse NY. We have a 60 year history, begun by Father Charlie J. Brady of walking the streets and neighborhoods of our city, loving people, advocating for justice and spreading the good news that God’s compassion and grace is present for all. It is from our relationships with our neighbors and through your support that new ministries and programs are created and sustained.
Brady Faith Center folds into the fabric of the neighborhood. We visited a recovering addict named Ed, who shares an apartment with another former resident of the Oxford Inn, a homeless shelter two blocks from the Brady Faith Center. Ed gave us his usual warm welcome and told us he truly cared about how we were doing. He told us how much our visits help him to keep up his determination to build a new life and stay clean. It just shows that sometimes the mission of the Brady Faith Center is to simply be present and show that someone out there cares.
Ed and so many others who are part of the Brady Faith Center are living out the message that Jesus says there is hope. I don’t care where you have been and it’s never too late to start over. What matters is the direction of your feet right now.
We need your financial support to continue to make a difference, one person, one family, one street, one neighborhood at a time! Please support our unique mission to keep our “feet on the street” by one of the following ways:
- Become a re-occuring donor. Our giving site supports one-time, weekly, monthly, and quarterly gifts. By planning YOUR giving it helps us plan for the future of Brady.
- Give Stock. The Brady Faith Center gratefully accepts gifts of stock. Please contact Kevin Frank at (315) 472-9077 or Bill Lipe at (315) 428-8585 for more information.
- Purchase a Brady Farm CSA. The Brady Farm is going into its fourth growing year and third year offering community supported agriculture. When you buy a CSA, you are investing in the farm and the mission. If you don’t want the veggies you can donate your CSA to a family in need!
- Remember Brady Faith Center as you plan your will. Please contact Kevin Frank at (315) 472-9077 for more information
Jesus wants to give all of us the confidence to start over and keep going. That’s why we believe helping someone follow their passion, find their purpose, or fill a need is something that’s worth doing. All we need is your help doing it.
