Poor and Needy Fund
There is a fund established through the generosity of our parishioners to help those in need from our parish. Sometimes a parishioner needs help with covering medical bills, house payment or utility bills through loss of job or illness. Or maybe the unexpected cost of a funeral, house fire, flood or robbery. If you know of someone from our parish that is in need of funds to help them get back on their feet, simply fill out the attached application and the Poor and Needy Committee will look it over and determine how they can best help.

By our Profession we promise to follow a Rule of Life approved and confirmed by Pope Paul VI in June of 1978. More info to come on meeting times and locations.
