bereavementHelping Hands assists the elderly or persons in need from our parish with services such as meal preparation, shopping, transportation, cleaning or yard work.  We provide assistance when families or other resources are not available.

We are here to help parishioners in need due to illness, hardship or loss.  We mainly provide transportation to mass, to doctor and dental appointments and occasionally assist with shopping needs.

Parishioners typically become aware of us through the church bulletin, word of mouth or the rectory.  We are thankful for the caring members of Helping Hands.
