Overview of Activities


The Adopt-a-Family program provides gifts and material assistance to low-income families in our community for Easter, Back-to-School, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Through partnership with neighboring businesses and the parish’s generosity, this program has provided thousands of gifts to hundreds of families over the past several  years. These families received clothing, household items, furniture, toys and food.
