Social Concerns Committee
Social Concerns deals with issues that are meant to help make our community a better place. We try any way we can to help those in our community who are less fortunate. This Committee serves as an outreach to the community by sponsoring blood drives, assistance and ministry to shut-ins, feeding the children and spending time with the children at the Juvenile Detention Center. We provide presents for
families who cannot afford presents at Christmas, work with DHS, Habitat for Humanity and with Inter Faith Pre School. We have an Angel Tree at Christmas for senior citizens and send greeting cards to our homebound for special occasions and birthdays and we also send cards to the sick and people who have lost loved ones.The regular meetings are on the 1st Thursday of every month at 6:00p.m. For more information please contact Carole Hargrave @ 646-9456.
This Committee is designed to reach out to fellow parishioners in their time of grief, they provide dinners or food for the family and out of town guest when needed. Volunteers are put on lists and two people co-chair each list. When the Committee is contacted the co-chairs call the names on the list they have and ask if they can either drop off a dish, help with the dinner or donate money to help with the meal. This is a wonderful Ministry that is a vital part of our parish. Contact Terry Olsen at 479-719-7662 to be added to the list of volunteers to assist this ministry.
