The Msgr. King Outreach Center is an ecumenical outreach to Denton’s homeless population. Msgr. King first opened the doors of the Narthex at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church during a cold winter night in 2009.
Monsignor King once stated regarding his ecumenical outreach vision, that simply, “this is what we’re supposed to be doing”……
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
The MKOC is open from 5 PM-8AM during inclement weather: In winter when temps drop below 32 degrees and in summer when the heat increases to 100 degrees. We offer a nourishing meal, cots and linens for a comfortable night’s sleep, and Christian fellowship from our wonderful volunteers.
We serve under the direction of the Monsignor King Outreach Center Board of Directors. It is a true collaboration of several churches, organizations, individuals, and businesses.
Many faith groups, individuals and organizations volunteer their time and donate supplies to operate the Shelter. All of these efforts and generous donations play a part in our success.
Over the years, numerous local restaurants, families and groups have generously provided evening meals, serving up to 60+ guests.
