WHAT IS FAMILY SPONSORSHIP MINISTRY?
Our “Family Sponsorship Ministry” was initiated in November 2002 in response to various needs found within our parish community. Since then, our goal has been to confidentially assist and support parishioners that have specific needs. For instance, we have provided financial assistance for heat and utility bills, shared gifts and food for families around Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons and throughout the year, with the help of our Food Pantry.
We have assisted our Religious Education Ministry in various ways including sponsoring a retreat trip for one of our high school youth, provided meals for our Confirmation Retreat. We have also assisted the Pastoral Ministry by providing gifts to those in our nursing homes and our shut-ins. It is an opportunity to help one another in a personal way. Donations from all of this were funded by you. Your time and energy have kept us alive. We are blessed with the support, generosity and kindness you have shown.
If you or someone you know has a particular need, please look in our weekly Church bulletin for names to contact.
Thank you on behalf of everyone in our parish.
