Sam Boyce, a parishioner at Our Lady Queen of Angels in Newport Beach, can quote the Bible, chapter and verse, in four separate places on why Christians are supposed to help the poor. As the owner of his own advertising agency, he did his part for years by writing checks to charities. Then two years ago on the streets of Laguna Beach and Santa Ana, he came face to face with the poorest of the poor--the street people. He saw families with six children, including newborns, sleeping on the street.
