Outreach Committee Members and Leaders:

We are looking for Outreach Committee Members; for people who want to support the St Anthony parish community. This committee currently includes the ministry known as The Order of St. Elizabeth. For several years, the Order of St. Elizabeth has been involved in outreach to families in need, meals of mercy, holiday meals, phone calls of encouragement, home visits, and visitation shut-ins. St. Elizabeth is currently open to adding new volunteers.

While the Order of St. Elizabeth will remain focused on those activities, The Outreach Committee is also looking to expand into other ministries (with new leaders) so as to meet other needs. These include: following up with missing parish members, establishing a food pantry, and a clothing drive. New outreach activities could also include organizing outreach campaigns, coordinating events, and determining better ways to support our parish. If you have passion for giving back and helping our parish families, please consider joining or leading an outreach ministry!
