Charity & Outreach

The Charity and Outreach Ministry researches, recommends, prioritizes, and allocates money for area agencies and other charities. The following committees fall under this ministry: the Haiti Mission, Holy Strokes, Joyous Junque, Respect Life, and the St. Vincent de Paul Team.

The chairperson of the Charity and Outreach Ministry is Chuck Lieber.


The Haiti Mission leads the parish’s efforts in twinning with a Haiti orphanage and educates the parish on ongoing projects in Haiti. Due to current dangerous conditions, team members are not able to visit Haiti. Please take time to learn about the current conditions and how the country became one of the poorest in the world. Your financial support is crucial to the continued operation of our twinned ministries.

Holy Strokes

The committee consists of 10 – 12 volunteers to solicit sponsors, plan the tournament, plan lunch, organize players and/or teams, set rules of play, and organize volunteers. The players have a fun day enjoying the golf, each other, and the competition. On the day of the event, volunteers help with registration, beverage carts, player request, and heckling the players and also join in the fun at lunch.
