The Monsignor 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.

hlMonsignor 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.’
-Matthew 25:39-41

The MKOC is open from 6:30PM-8AM Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights and during inclement weather: when temperature drops below 32 degrees, when the heat increases to 100 degrees and during severe storms. We offer a nourishing meal (on Tuesdays), a cot with 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 the operation of 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.
