"In a world where there is so much wealth, so many resources to feed everyone, it is unfathomable that there are so many hungry children, that there are so many children without an education, so many poor persons."
The Sister Parish Outreach Ministry provides for the struggling families of our sister parish, Our Lady of Angels, in the following ways:
This ministry offers a very tangible way to share our joy and gratitude for our many blessings.
It is time again for the St Gregory the Great Adopt-a-Family Stewardship Program. The Adopt-A-Family Stewardship provides an opportunity for St Gregory the Great parishioners to share their gifts with those who are in need through “adopting” (sponsoring) families who may not otherwise be able to provide during the holiday season for their own families. Families from St. Gregory the Great who are having financial hardship are encouraged to apply.
Due to Covid restrictions, we are asking St Greg's parishioners that instead of purchasing, wrapping, and delivering presents, to just purchase gift cards to Target and/or Walmart for their adopted family. We will not be able to receive any presents, packages, cash, or checks. This will make it easy and safer for everyone, just this one time given the unprecedented circumstances.
If you would like to participate, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number, how many people you would like to adopt (sponsor), and if you have specific a request for age/gender. You will receive an email with further instructions. For more information please contact us.
Thank you for your support

Lord, we pray that as a Church, you strike in our hearts the desire to help the needy. Help us to recognize that hunger affects not nameless, faceless people, but other human beings: people with families, hopes, and dreams for a better future. Allow us to work hard to bring about positive change in the lives of these people.
