Walking With Moms In Need
  • Orientate parish to help pregnant and parenting women in need through compassion, friendship and support
  • Mobilize a team of volunteers to give support when needed
  • Highlight the gift of pregnancy through encouragement and assistance to all expectant parish families
Increasing Accessibility
  • Examine Accessibility of the Parish so that all can really mean ALL (Refer to Accessibility Checklist)
  • Commit to at least one budgeted accessibilty improvement each year
  • Engage in intentional outreach to the Deaf Community and those with special needs

Are the people in your Parish Missing out on Mercy?

Mercy is love’s response to suffering and god knows that when we do good for others, we feel better about ourselves and our world. Mercy is key to our encounter with Jesus and how we experience the joy of the Gospel, but many Catholics miss out in this joyful encounter because the aren’t involved.
