Our Ministries

Outreach Ministries

Make an impact outside of our parish community to those in need around the city and around the world. Our outreach ministries provide opportunities to practice the corporeal works of mercy: feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, shelter the homeless, clothe the naked, and give alms to the poor. Make a lasting impact.
