One of the most important ministries of our parish is the care for the poor and those in need. Our food pantry currently serves many families and individuals on a monthly basis, and provides holiday dinners for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We are looking for volunteers to continue this vital ministry in our parish and our community. If you are interested or know of someone who might be interested in this work, contact the Administrative Center at 412-231-1116.
