Outreach programs help people in need outside of the congregation itself. Outreach has always been a central part of our ministry. The Outreach Commission meets about four times a year to decide on the projects and programs it is able to support. Priority is generally given to projects where the parish in general, or one or more of its members, has a personal connection.
The second Sunday of each month has been designated as Outreach Sunday, for purposes of sharing information on our activities and supplementing the funds provided through the general budget. Special fund-raising events are also organized on an ad hoc basis to raise additional funds, often in response to a crisis.
