Social Services
Visiting the Homebound

Every so often, a parishioner may find that due to illness or age, they are unable to attend Mass. One of our Eucharist Ministers will be delighted to bring Holy Communion and spend some time with our parishioners.

Baptismal Preparation Program

Volunteers assist with the Preparation class for Baptisms and the celebration of the sacrament. The program meets on the last Thursday of each month.

The Office also participates in programs of the Inter-religious & Human Needs Council, including Back to School, Thanksgiving, Christmas & Easter Drives, English as a Second Language program and the Summer Camp Scholarship program.

Volunteerism & Philanthropy:

We are always in need of volunteers and welcome you with open arms. We are also in need of funds to help us care for those in need. Funds are traditionally raised through donations from parishioners and friends, through Outreach Dinners, a collection at the Thanksgiving Mass and through the Christmas Adopt a Family program.
