Your stewardship dollars have an incredible impact in providing direct assistance to our neighbors in need. St. Mary’s Outreach works with community organizations and directly with members of our community.
How You Can Get Involved
Lay Assistance Ministry – Administered by St. Mary’s parishioners in face-to-face meetings, this program provides applicants with up to $150.00 of emergency financial assistance. Seeking to be more than ‘just another social services agency,’ St. Mary’s partners with other parishes and community organizations (including Arlington County’s Department of Human Services) to provide prayerful support and pastoral counseling in our time with those seeking assistance. The program runs twice a month.
- Contact Ned Leonard, Ned.Leonard@StMarysArlington.org if you are interested in welcoming our neighbors in need of assistance and help the LAM team from 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at St. Mary’s. We are especially in need of parishioner volunteers who are fluent in Spanish and other foreign languages.
PRS CrisisLink – Started in 1969, CrisisLink offers 24-hour hotline access to skilled, compassionate listening, as well as comprehensive crisis prevention, intervention and response programs.
