Chairpersons: Mary Ann Langas and Therese Speropoulos

On behalf of the Parish, the Outreach Committee partners with the Philoptochos chapter to follow the Way from Matthew 25:35–

…For I was hungry and you gave Me food

…I was thirsty and you gave Me drink

…I was a stranger and you took Me in

…I was naked and you clothed Me

…I was in prison and you came to Me

 

The committee arranges multiple opportunities for Parish members to participate in outreach events–
