Outreach - Volunteering

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34

There are many ways to help with the Outreach Ministry! Please contact the Outreach Office for more information.

Parish Outreach Volunteer
Members of this ministry live out their baptismal call to follow Jesus in serving the poor in acts of charity and justice. To be a member of this ministry, one must have the ability to listen (without making judgments), keep information confidential, work as a member of a Christian community and be respectful to clients and co-workers.

Responsibilities include developing one’s spirituality, packing the food pantry, making appropriate referrals and advocating for the needy. Outreach Ministers work three hours in the morning or afternoon during office hours of 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Monday-Friday.

Training is provided through on-the-job mentoring, Catholic Charities workshops and discussion of current reading materials regarding Parish Social Ministry.

Friendly Visitors
Friendly Visitors visit a homebound person at their home. Spending time with a homebound person can really brighten up their day! Friendly Visitors do not provide any other services (they do not fix meals, do errands, etc.) - they just visit.

Members of this ministry visit a homebound person once a week to provide companionship, share stories of faith, and listen, and is a very rewarding activity for all involved.

Holiday Helpers
Members of this ministry help with large, parish-wide events for Easter (Operation Bunny), Fall school supplies, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Holiday Helpers plan, collect, gather, create, organize and distribute “care-packages” for our needy neighbors.

Meals-On-Wheels
Stephanie at Nutrition Center
473-1211

Meals-On-Wheels is a program where drivers deliver hot, nutritious meals to the homebound every weekday. This program is sponsored by the Town of Brookhaven.

Members of this ministry pick up hot meals at the Shoreham Nutrition Center and deliver them to members of our community who are homebound. The meals are delivered for lunch, Monday-Friday. Each volunteer usually is responsible for one day of the week. Members are also needed to work as substitutes when the regular volunteer is not available.

Special thanks to Long Island Cares andKentucky Fried Chicken for donating to our Food Pantry.
