Parish Social Ministries (PSM) include a number of ministries of outreach and support to members of the parish and to the broader community. The parish Director of PSM directs all aspects of these ministries with the help of coordinators assigned to each ministry.

Parish Social Ministry Pantry: This pantry contains items that people can not get with food stamps. This pantry helps to fill some of the void in our community. The pantry is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays of each week, depending on availability of items for those in need. The items needed for the pantry are: paper towels, toilet paper, shampoo, hair conditioner, body soap, toothpaste, deodorant, laundry detergent, fabric softener, dishwashing detergent and diapers. Parishioners may donate these items each week by putting them in the Parish Social Ministry Pantry barrel in the Narthex of the church. Volunteers are needed to work in the pantry.
