St. Pascal Baylon parish members have many opportunities to help make the world a better place. Service projects coordinated for parishioners include feeding and clothing the poor, and scheduling semi-annual visits of the Red Cross Bloodmobile to the parish.
Our Social Justice & Caring Committee also keeps parishioners informed of current social justice issues and activities. They work both independently and collectively with other churches to address the needs of those who are unable to care or speak for themselves.
Several times a year, the SJCC organizes the We Care Campaign, an outreach program to allow parishioners to learn about and contribute to carefully selected charitable organizations.
For more information about St. Pascal's social Justice and Caring Committee, please email Fr. John Mitchell or call him at 651.432.4955.
Donation Closet Update
Beginning in August, collections by the parish for outside organizations will take place on a rotating basis. These will be coordinated by the Social Justice and Caring Committee. The organizations include ones the parish has supported (ex. Brittany’s Place, Listening House, Merrick Community Services) with the primary change being that of collecting for one organization each month unless otherwise advertised.
In August, donations will be accepted for Brittany’s Place, an emergency shelter in St. Paul for girls and young women who have experienced commercial sex trafficking or are at high risk for sexual exploitation. See a list of items Briattany's Place needs at this time. Items can be placed in the donation closet before and after weekend Masses.
