Outreach/Service Ministry 

 

TRANSITIONAL HOUSING

Transitional Housing helps homeless families become self-supportive, self-reliant contributors to society. The program’s focus is to move families to self sufficiency. It assists people who are ready to move beyond emergency shelter into a more independent living situation and allows individuals and families to further develop the stability, confidence and coping skills needed to sustain permanent housing. 

P.A.D.S. (Public Action to Deliver Shelter)

This organization works to provide shelter and meals to the homeless. DuPage PADS is recognized in DuPage County for providing temporary, transitional and permanent supportive housing for people without homes.

CAROLINE MINISTRY

The Caroline Ministry is intended to offer relief to families and loved ones of people confined to home or bed. For their own health and well-being, caregivers need “time away” or they might have other obligations to tend to. In an effort to assist these caregivers, Caroline Ministers offer relief by sitting with the ailing person while the caregiver takes time away. 

GARDEN ANGELS

This group of parishioners works tirelessly to nurture and beautify the parish grounds by planting, watering, weeding and maintaining the landscape around the church and parish center.

RIGHT TO LIFE / PRO-LIFE MINISTRY

This ministry organizes activities and provides the parish with information regarding the quality and preservation of life. Focus is placed on the Catholic Church’s position of a consistent ethic of life from conception to natural death.
