Members meet once a month, usually at 9:30 am on the third Sunday of the month to discuss needs that have been presented to them.

They have two clothing collection mornings each year, one in the Spring and one in the Fall with items collected going to the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store on Park Avenue in Worcester.

Members sponsor a monthly food collection weekend (3rd of the month) when parishioners are asked to bring items of non-perishable food with them to Mass to be used to stock the shelves of the Food Pantry for distribution to people who come to the parish looking for assistance.

Meal baskets are prepared and distributed to households in need for Thanksgiving and Christmas each year.

Members also attempt to respond directly or by referral to various emergency needs of people who turn to the parish in their need.

MONTHLY MUSTARD SEED MEAL 
On the second Tuesday of each month, a group of parishioners prepares and serves a hot meal at the Catholic Worker facility known as The Mustard Seed on Piedmont Street in Worcester.  The parish’s Outreach Ministry provides the financial resources to purchase the food.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR OUTREACH MINISTRY
Contributions are always welcome to enable our various ministries to reach out in the name of all parishioners.  A portion of the Holy Day Collections is set aside for use by our Outreach Ministries.

BEREAVEMENT MINISTRY
This ministry group is developing to be a supportive outreach of the parish to people who have experienced the death of loved ones.  The support is offered in prayer and a listening ear at monthly gatherings and through phone call ministry.

QUILTING ANGELS
A group of parishioners and friends meets on various Monday evenings at 7:00 pm in the Parish Center to sew and crochet or knit items that are used in various caring agencies and ministries in the city of Worcester.  For information, you can call Doris Power at 508-799-7892.
