At mustard seed abroadServing the Most Vulnerable

Mustard Seed Communities is a permanent home for abandoned children with disabilities in Jamaica. We serve them by fundraising, working on special projects and doing whatever we can to help. Mustard Seed Communities is also home to our Mission Trips and the reason MMM was founded.

Our Mission

locally at homeServing Those in Need

Recent ways we have helped those in our community in need is by opening our doors as a warming station in the winter, providing meals and essential items with no questions asked via the Red Door; and when the pandemic hit, we helped restaurants stay open by hiring them to make meals for people in need of one.

Our Mission

at heartServing the Next Generation

We take Pittsburgh based high schoolers and college students to visit the residents at Mustard Seed in Jamaica in hopes they will bring a missionary charism of caring for the most vulnerable among us home with them to Pittsburgh. Currently sidelined by the Pandemic, we hope to travel again soon!

These young men and women are so impacted by the experience, their Catholic faith so enriched, they return with a new, giving spirit. So we decided to do what we can so more students can have that experience.

Quotes

For the first time in 16 years, I began to feel like I was slowly reaching an inner peace - I put my faith in this peace and trusted that if the Lord could bring me such amazing change in just one day, that there was more to come in my remaining days at Mustard Seed in Jamaica.

Quotes

Caring for others, taking on their problems and offering love in return, validates everything that we have lived for. Loving others is the realest thing that we can do – it’s what we’re called to do.

Our Story


In 2016, we led 11 high schoolers on a mission trip to Mustard Seed Communities in Kingston, Jamaica. We went there to serve and be a blessing for the most vulnerable. Turns out, they blessed us in ways we could have never imagined! As our mission program expanded, this remained a constant experience. Our friends at Mustard Seed, despite their many challenges, leave a joy that is contagious and transforming for our hearts. We stumbled into a gold mine, a truth as ancient and as new as our Catholic Faith itself: the most vulnerable, those rejected by the world, are privileged channels of God's grace.

We felt compelled to find a way to bring the same transforming joy back home. From this desire, God provided inspiration for our outreach to those at Mustard Seed abroad, to our local high school and college students and to those in need in our local community. Most recently, we have opened Brother Andre's Cafe, a coffee and gift shop that employs adults with IDD in our community. Your support enables us to continue our support of our youth and the vulnerable amongst us.
