The Donate-a-Day ministry offers periodic and ongoing opportunities for parishioners to live their call to stewardship, by generously sharing their time, gifts and talent in service to others. With reflection on the principles of Catholic Social Justice, this ministry sponsors and coordinates service opportunities for those in need, through a variety of local social service agencies. Events are typically scheduled for weeknights or weekend afternoons for a few hours, and may involve painting, gardening, or preparing meals for Lincoln Park Community Services or Catholic Charities.


For more information, or to sign up for any of these opportunities, please contact staff member Barbara Silva.
