Hands of Mercy (Outreach) Overview

All of our outreach is organized through our Hands of Mercy Team.  Our work is guided by the corporal works of mercy:
    • To feed the hungry
    • To give water to the thirsty
    • To shelter the homeless
    • To visit the sick
    • To visit the imprisoned, or ransom the captive
    • To bury the dead
    • To give alms to the poor

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer, however, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community! Volunteering and helping others can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. And you'll probably make some new friends too!

While it’s true that the more you volunteer, the more benefits you’ll experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day. Giving in even simple ways can help those in need and improve your health and happiness. We offer many opportunities for you to volunteer here at St. Josaphat and help us serve our community and friends in need. We welcome you to join us!
