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.
