St. Stephen Outreach Ministries is a program designed to serve the many needs of the St. Stephen family and of our surrounding community. OUTREACH is guided by Board Members and is supported by many volunteers, who give their time and talent to help our brothers and sisters in Christ realize a better life through community wide ministries such as:
This ministry helps with various projects during the year such as food pantry, school drives, Thanksgiving and Easter projects and the Christmas store. Provides temporary assistance to parishioners in need of emergency help with monthly services.
Good Neighbors Program
This ministry provides transportation and meals and /or other respite care needs. This ministry works closely with the parish nurse program to help meet the needs of the sick, shut-ins and disabled of our parish family and community.
Provides immediate needs and develops self-sustaining projects for our adopted parish of St. Yves in Jacmel, Haiti. We investigate practical capital projects that will enhance the lives of the local population.
Hand ‘N Hand
Help with special needs population. We enjoy wonderful activities and friendship in a safe environment filled with love and caring provided by nurturing and dedicated volunteers. This ministry answers God’s call to serve others by fostering compassion and love to His special children.
Help with small home repairs and yard work to families and seniors in need. Most of the work is done on weekends and includes painting, minor carpentry work, and yard clean up. We also move families having financial difficulty that need a change in housing.
The role of the parish nurse is to serve as a liaison of the family of St. Stephen to those who are ill. Nurses provide valuable resources to these individuals. Click here for additional information.
This ministry provides comfort and support to our senior population, many of whom are home bound. We have a team of helpful and friendly parish members who make contact with seniors offering companionship to connect them to the parish and available resources.
