Mission: We, the family of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, in our Outreach Ministry are committed to loving service to our brothers and sisters in need. In community we strive to become living examples of Jesus Christ through many working hands.
The Outreach Program services those in need by the generous donations of time, talent and treasure of our OLA parishioners. We strive to be aware of the continuing changing needs of our parish.
There is the collection and distribution of non-perishable items from the food pantry, bread donations from Panera’s, and clothing donations throughout the year. The items are distributed to individuals in the area, and to the Patrician Society, the Missionary Sisters of Charity and Piarist missions on the East Coast of the United States.
Outreach provides for the collation of gifts, cards, and booklets to be given to our homebound and those in skilled nursing care through visitations by the Extraordinary Ministers, the Legion of Mary, and the IHM Sisters (when asked).
We assist other non-profit organizations when called upon, e.g., TECares.
