St. Mary’s Outreach

For more than 30 years, St. Mary’s parishioners have set-aside 25 percent of our pledged income to Outreach believing it to be central to our faith.

From Leviticus to Corinthians, and throughout Jesus’ life as recorded in the four Gospels, Holy Scripture is filled with examples of mission and outreach. So are the liturgies of the church. Nowhere is this more clear than in the Baptismal Covenant where we affirm that we ‘will seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourselves.

St. Mary’s and our parishioners assist our neighbors nearby and those on the other side of the world. Assistance takes the form of direct community action, volunteer work, financial support, and leadership.
We support more than 25 organizations. While each one uniquely serves people in need, we have grouped some organizations by a service category. Please explore each of the categories listed in the Outreach drop-down menu to learn how you can get involved.
