The Outreach Committee meets the first Thursday of the month in the Parish Center, starting at 7:30 PM. The goal of the Committee is to focus on the corporal and spiritual needs of those in the surrounding area. For example, they run a Christmas Drive which assists a sister parish in Bridgeport in collecting clothing and needed gifts for those who are less fortunate. The Committee also helps Haiti Marycare by collecting clothing and pre-natal kits, which has dramatically reduced the instances of infant mortality. The Committee has also helped Project Rachael, which is a retreat held for post abortive women who need to cope with the tragedy of losing their babies. The Committee also conducts clothing drops for area shelters.

“For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.”  - Psalms 32:4.

During a heat-related illness, the body’s temperature can quickly rise above 103 degrees. To prevent overheating make sure the person stays hydrated, wears loose clothing, avoids the hottest time of the day, avoids caffeinated beverages, and uses air conditioning or fans to cool down. If suffering from heat stroke, a person may display the following: confusion, dizziness, fainting, clammy/pale skin, headache, fatigue, dry mouth, weak pulse, lack of perspiration, or nausea. If heat stroke is suspected, move the person to a cool place and seek medical attention immediately to prevent serious complications.
