  • Raising money for schools of the Central City Ministry.

  • Adopting families at holidays.

  • Writing letters as pen pals to elderly/homebound members of the parish.

  • Preparing food baskets for community outreach organizations.

  • Collecting coats, hats, and mittens for community outreach programs.

  • Making decorations for community and parish events.

  • Visiting the elderly at area nursing homes.
