At St. Francis, our mission is to live as Christ’s heart and hands in the world. And so we are committed to helping our neighbors, whoever they are. Through our outreach ministry, we pledge to work with our hearts and hands in the name of Christ and provide help to those in need, to encourage others to join with us in this work, and to provide timely information about community needs. The St. Francis Outreach Committee reaches out to those in need in many creative ways through support of multiple outreach projects and through its support of individual ministries. Some involve almost the entire parish, and some involve only a few people. All are important, and all forms of participation in outreach are welcomed.
