Church and School Outreach

Engage your parish and school with faith-in-action opportunities

“Jesus teaches us another way: Go out. Go out and share your testimony, go out and interact with your brothers, go out and share, go out and ask. Become the Word in body as well as spirit.” – Pope Francis

Take the Gospel “to the ends of the earth” while ministering to the physical needs of the poor. Get your faith formation or ministries teams involved in one of our many campaigns to bring dignity, safety and life-saving aid to our brothers and sisters in Christ.
