“Go in peace to love and serve the Lord with joy”
by providing compassionate assistance to those in spiritual or material need.
St. Christopher’s Outreach makes it possible for the Church to exercise charity – to be a Church that reaches out and lives the mission of service to the poor and vulnerable, providing help and creating hope.
We serve anyone residing within our parish boundaries regardless of race, religion and creed.
Based on parish volunteers who have committed themselves to helping the people of our community, Parish Social Ministry is a vibrant, growing part of our faith community. Volunteers give freely of their time and talents providing assistance to those with basic needs, striving to minister compassionately, with sensitivity and confidentiality, hopefully treating each person with the dignity that each sister and brother deserves in Christ.
Parish Social Ministry provides assistance in different ways:
- Direct Service – working with the St. Vincent de Paul Society, (distribution of food, clothing, furniture, and assistance with shelter needs, visitation, telephone reassurance, financial assistance and special services)
- Advocacy – speaking out for the vulnerable in our society in an effort to move beyond charity to justice.
Throughout the year we host many different projects:
- Christmas Angels
- Thanksgiving Distribution
- Mother’s Day for homeless woman & children
Our needs change weekly. Please see our bulletin for our current needs.
Thank you for your support.
