The Office of Social Ministry identifies the need for social services within the parish community as well as outside the parish. As disciples of Christ we are called to reach out to those in need. We provide information, referrals and resources for emergency assistance. We are dependent on the service of many dedicated volunteers who donate their time and resources for all the programs offered in this ministry. Our services are designed to address basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, transportation, and support for bereaved, homebound, elderly, incarcerated and the poor.
