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.

“Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord.”” - James 5:14

Influenza is a respiratory illness from which most people recover without difficulty. For people in the high risk categories, it can have severe complications and even death. A complication might be mild dehydration but if not treated, could escalate into a very serious concern. The flu can also cause bacterial pneumonia and worsen conditions like congestive heart failure, asthma, or diabetes. In the US an average of over 200,000 people are hospitalized each year because of complications of which 36,000 will die. Flu is serious business so protect against it.
