Human Concerns Ministry


"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me"

Matthew 25:35-36

A Special Message to parishioners who may be struggling financially, especially with food.

 

Maybe you have been struggling month after month for some time to make ends meet. Layoffs and job losses are reported almost every week. We understand you may NEVER have been in a position of needing or asking for help. Now is the time to lean on your church family for assistance. We are here for you. You are not alone.
