“Spreading God’s love through outreach” is the goal of the Outreach Ministry. We are charged with developing and implementing programs to bring the good news of the love of God and the joy of his presence to the community outside Saint Mary’s; developing and implementing programs to fulfill the mission interest of our parish; reporting to the vestry the distribution of funds for outreach; and serving as liaison to local relief and outreach organizations.
Among the organizations we currently support are Sharing God’s Love, The Shepherd’s Center of St. Andrews, The Free Medical Clinic, The Family Shelter, York Place, and St. Lawrence Place. Our big fundraiser, The Island Party for Haiti Education, provides funds for teacher salaries and student scholarships at our two schools in Haiti.
We are a dynamic ministry whose focus changes as the pressing needs of our community and the world around us change. Currently we are exploring several organizations whose mission is to find solutions to the increasing needs of homeless families in our community.
The Outreach Ministry welcomes new members at any time and hopes that you will be drawn to share your time and energy with us.
