The Shepherd's Cafe offers a common forum that encourages and promotes Catholic culture for like-minded people to come together to share and grow in their faith. Our activities hold true to Catholic teachings and/or encourage those in attendance to live out their Catholic faith. The cafe draws young people together for network opportunities and to strengthen the Catholic community in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.
2. Promote Vocations -
We work together with Religious Orders and Diocesan priests to promote Vocations and spiritually feed the people they encounter.
3. Social Justice -
We help impoverished coffee farmers from Third World countries through our sub-ministry, Mission Coffee Ministry. Serving coffee from Honduras and Nicaragua while sharing the stories of these farmers allows us to educate and make awareness of poverty around the world.
Our Future Vision:
- To have a free-standing coffee house close distance to a Catholic church
- Provide a coffee house open to the public for normal business hours Monday through Saturday
- Promote and provide live Catholic entertainment (musicians, speakers, artists, comedians, shows, movies, etc.) on Friday and Saturday evenings
- Create an environment where people can come for meetings or study
- A place for social interactions, networking, and fellowship amongst Catholics
