Social Justice Ministry Opportunities
St. Pascal Baylon parish members have many opportunities to help make the world a better place. Parishioners serve meals at the Ramsey County Family Shelter, deliver Meals on Wheels, provide food to Merrick Community Food Shelf and the Dorothy Day Center by contributions of food and money, save lives by quarterly donations to the Red Cross Bloodmobile here, and clothe the poor by contributions to Joseph's Coat. Contributions of food and clothing can be made in the Donation Drop-off closet, adjacent to the cloak room off of the Commons. Cash contributions may be dropped in the Sunday collection or sent to the Parish Office.
St. Pascal's Social Justice & Caring Committee works to keep our parishioners informed of current social justice issues and activities. Three times a year, this committee organizes the We Care Campaign, an outreach program to allow parishioners to learn of and contribute to charitable organizations.
Administrative and general service opportunities
Sunday Giving: open, count, record and deposit weekly and special collections.
