Community Affairs Committee
This parish committee organizes programs that help provide for broad-based assistance within our parish and in the community at large. In a typical year, they are involved in many projects. Some examples are:
- Are in charge of monthly donations to the Poor Box which are given to area charities, e.g., Derry’s Sonshine Soup Kitchen, the American Red Cross, NH war veterans, Our Place, and Birthright, among others.
- Coordinate, prepare salads and desserts and serve at the Soup Kitchen one Monday each month.
- Coordinate and distribute gifts and food to needy families during the Christmas season.
- Coordinate and conduct a blood drive once every year for the American Red Cross.
This group needs volunteers to assist with their vital ministry. Please consider attending one of their monthly meetings, held on the first Monday of the month in the Cry Room at 7:30 p.m.
