Outreach Committee

About Us

The goal of this group is to expand our parish’s outreach to the poor, needy, and less fortunate.  Our main function is to get the parishioners of the parish involved.


  • Create a list of young adults (7th, 8th grade, etc.) who could shovel snow, rake leaves, do light shopping for the sick, disabled, and senior parishioners.
  • Create a mentoring program for career building. This program would increase skills, help with resume writing, job search, etc.
  • Establish a newsletter to communicate to parishioners. This newsletter would seek parishioners with special talents and inform our parish community of currently existing outreach programs and upcoming events and projects.
