The heart of the Parish Outreach Program is assisting parishes in organizing outreach programs. Every "truly Catholic" parish has three essential components: worship, education and service. The goal of this program is to develop/enhance the talents and skills of parishioners, enabling them to serve one another and to reach out to meet the needs of their neighborhoods. Parish Outreach is a partnership between the central agency and the parish. Catholic Charities provides the professional supervision, consultation, and training to the coordinators and their volunteers. The Parish provides the parishioners, the space and financial support. This service is available throughout the Diocese.
