Outreach

What hurts in the world are you healing?
What Need in Your Neighborhood are you meeting?

“Reach out to those who are in need, carrying out Christ’s work in our community and around the world.”


St. Michael’s has a long history of participation in outreach projects. Since our founding we have supported activities at home and abroad with monetary gifts and with the personal involvement of our parishioners.

 

In this way we share the servant ministry of our Lord.

 

In addition, Outreach provides good fellowship, an opportunity to use our special gifts, and joyful satisfaction.
