OUTREACH

All Saints' is a community of love and action; we seek to better serve people, both near and far. 

ADOPT-A-CASEWORKER

A program that provides Easter baskets, back-to-school backpacks with clothing and school supplies, and Christmas gifts to needy children through Child Protective Services caseworkers. The 3 annual campaigns are organized by Jan Hilton and involve parishioners donating money, goods, or gifts.

 

Your donations to the Adopt-A-Caseworker program are estimated to be about $5-6K per year.

COMPASSIONATE LIVING COMMISSION

 All Saints’ Compassionate Living Commission (CLC) presents you with hands-on as well as financial opportunities for service in outreach to our community and the World.  

“Developing intimacy with God puts us into living relationship with all creation and every created being.  It means that we become deeply and vividly aware of our mission and destiny as a creature of God who, through that relationship, is in union with all of creation and participating in the compassionate heart of God.”

- from the Centerpoint Parish Pilgrimage
