Community Concerns


CATHOLIC CHARITIES
Catholic Charities provides emergency services for those in need through the H.O.P.E. food bank, prescription assistance, and adult advocacy. Catholic Charities helps put faith in action. In addition to the above, one can volunteer in the office or serve on the advisory board.

FEED THE NEEDY
Many volunteers are needed to continue the work of providing a hot and nourishing lunch to the needy of the community on the first full week of each month, Monday through Friday, serving from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in the church basement. Volunteers are needed for set-up, food preparation, serving, and clean up.

FOOD DELIVERY
Volunteers are needed on an occasional basis to take non-perishable food collected at Church and in the Parish Center to Catholic Charities.

PRISON MINISTRY
Working with priests and deacons of the parish, teams of parishioners assist in prison liturgies, retreats, Bible study, and other ministry to men in the local prisons. Contact Deacon Terry Philpott.

CANDLELIGHT PRAYER VIGIL
Candlelight prayer vigils are held the evening before each state execution. The focus of this ministry is to pray for an end to violence, including the use of the death penalty. Watch the bulletin or call for further information.

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY
Parishioners meet monthly to pray and prayerfully support families and individuals in need. In a Christ-like spirit of sharing, these men and women “walk with” families in need, helping them become more independent. Open to new members.
