The wife of noble character "opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy," describes Proverbs 31:20. So what better way to honor the Feast of the Nativity of Mary, the most noble wife to ever live, than with feeding the hungry? On September 8, 2014, Fr. Varghese wrote in an email: "Today's attraction, feeding poor and day of Mariadalem." Volunteers joined Missionaries of Charity and Fr. Varghese at his Sacred Heart Mission, in feeding the needy. Later, the pious ladies' organization, the "Mariadalem," were recognized at a special feast day Mass at the mission.
