The St. Patrick Food Pantry provides emergency food to persons in need. We are supported solely by donations. Volunteers stock the pantry shelves, shop for needed items, meet with clients, and prepare the bags of food for distribution. Friday’s from 4 to 5 PM in the Bonzel Hall.
Church volunteers work as a team to assist and support a local foster family who is caring for children in foster care. Team members work together on various tasks by helping transport children, tutoring, bringing in meals, helping with yard work, and watching children while foster parents have a night out. Strong relationships are formed and children's lives are positively impacted with the love of Christ. There are currently two teams at St. Patrick supporting two families. St. Patrick has been supporting foster families through Fostering Hope since its inception in 2006. Would you like to help? Call Mike Myers at 271-0308 or email:

Senior Mobile Dental
The mission is to serve older adults living in nursing homes who have benefited from dental care throughout their lives and careers, yet are now falling into a state of disease and neglect because they can no longer afford dental services, or are unable physically to get to the dentist office because of their frail health. Senior Mobile Dental has just received grants which will provide care for qualified low income seniors and facilitate needed dental hygiene and dental work and remotely provide x-rays and photos of diseased teeth to a dentist to allow a more efficient approach to receiving dental care. For more information, contact Michelle Vacha, Founder and servant leader at 338- 2195 or

Soup Kitchen Workers
Volunteers assist in the preparation and serving of meals for the needy at the Marian House Soup Kitchen. Older youth (16 and older) may participate. Volunteers serve the first Saturday of each month.
This committee of volunteers meets periodically to review requests of non-profit organizations and discern which charities will benefit from the ten percent tithe taken from weekend offertory collections. If you would like to learn more about this process or volunteer some time, call the parish office at 598-3595.
