Outreach Ministries

  • Evangelization – works to encourage parishioners to deepen their faith commitment and to share their faith with others who do not currently practice a religion. Often their work is done in conjunction with other parish ministries.
  • Social Justice and Service – acts to raise up the principles of the Catholic Social Justice tradition in the parish by applying them to specific situations that confront our area, our nation and our world. They do this through educational programming, specialized collections for the needy and direct service to the poor and marginalized.
  • Legion of Mary is a group that meets weekly for prayer and reflection. They are committed to direct service and commitment to the poor.
  • Ecumenical and Interfaith – encourages positive relations between the parish and its parishioners with those who practice other Christian and non-Christian faiths.
  • Domestic Violence – Recognizing that domestic violence is a critical problem facing our society, the Domestic Violence Ministry of Old St. Mary’s is working to raise awareness in order to help prevent domestic violence in our parish community.
