St. Francis Church is deeply committed to Outreach – both in the distribution of our resources and in the involvement of our people.
Our Grants Program distributes more than $30,000 per year to organizations that help the most vulnerable members of society. Most of this is distributed locally, but special needs in other parts of the United States and around the world are funded as well. Click here for a list of 2012 Grant Recipients.
The Outreach Committee coordinates many hands-on projects as well, such as the twice a year Midnight Run into New York city to distribute food, clothing and toiletries to the homeless, meal preparation at the Shelter for the Homeless, and preparation of food boxes at Christmastime through Person-to-Person’s Dove Box Program, and regular food drives for the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County
