St. Edna Outreach

St. Edna Outreach ministers to the poor, the homeless, and those in need of emergency financial assistance. This assistance is made possible through the generosity of parishioners of St. Edna.

Outreach Ministry program description:

People seeking help may come to St. Edna during the following service hours, or call the office to be connected to the hotline.  We provide Jewel cards, McDonalds cards, gas vouchers and emergency financial assistance to those within our boundary.  Help from the food pantry is given to all who request it.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our service hours will be just Saturday from 9am to noon.

 

We are always looking for compassionate people to serve as Outreach ministers.  We currently have 4 teams.   As a minister, you would serve one three-hour shift every four weeks.  Training is provided.  For those who work fulltime, we currently have a need for someone to serve on Saturdays.  If you are interested in serving as an Outreach minister let me know.

You can help.  The food pantries at St. James and St. Edna always need donations of household items (toilet paper, paper towels, dish and laundry detergent) as well as canned fruit.
