Social Action Ministries
| Social Action Ministry involves many outreach efforts to our larger community as well as within our parish. Our
ministry's purpose is to express our love and service to Jesus by being compassionate and responsive to the
needs of others. Our work mirrors our belief in the worth and dignity of all people we serve. Below is a listing
of our programs. We are always welcoming new faces, both with our clients and our volunteers.
Please contact Jennifer Mirek at (503) 625-7067 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
