The Human Concerns Committee strives to provide help to those in need in our parish family, the local community, and beyond, through education and assistance.  The MBS Human Concern’s Committee Strategic Plan aligns with the Six Pastoral Focus Areas outlined in the A Pastoral Letter on Priorities for Parishes and the Diocese by the Most Reverend David L. Ricken, DD, JCL

 

Current Human Concerns projects include:

  • Coordination of the Parish’s Care Ministry Program

  • Host a Stone Soup Supper on Holy Thursday

  • In Partnership with the Woman’s Group, coordination of monthly meal preparation for the Warming Shelter

  • Honor Veterans during all masses the weekend closest to Veteran’s Day

  • Promote the 40 Days of Life Campaign

  • Involve the parish in Back to School Fair to reduce financial burden of low income families

  • Sponsor a Giving Tree at Christmas providing gifts for residents in area nursing home (Parkview & North Point) & low Income children (Head Start)

  • Sponsor Fair Trade Sale to support the poor in another country

  • Annually engage a speaker for the parish with a topic to focus on a social issues

  • Sponsor a basket for the Summer Church Picnic with basic needs.  Include with the basket items area statistics on poverty.

 

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’  Acts 20:35
