Pastoral Care volunteers visit and take the Eucharist to parish members unable to attend mass for health reasons. They also send cards of compassion to parish members who are sick or have experienced a loss.

The Pastoral Care committee is made up of committed individuals who share the duties of taking communion to shut-in parishioners.

Social Justice committee members support local agencies include the Regina Food Bank, Transition House (short-term shelter for women & children), the Marian Centre, Visitation House (drop-in centre for women & children) , and the Isabel Johnson Shelter (YWCA)

Members also assist refugee families who now make Regina their home. They offer support and friendship, and help them get to medical appointments and shopping. The goal is to help families and individuals become independent and self sufficient while forming friendships and promoting cultural understanding.

The Social Justice committee also has a focus on people living in developing countries. This is done through work with the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace.

Support is also shown to help others in our city by organizing such events as the Birthright Shower (February), and the Advent Giving Tree for Christmas hampers.

If you are interested in meeting and helping people, you are invited to join the dedicated volunteers of this committee.

The Social Justice/Pastoral Care Committee meets about every eight weeks. Dates and times are published in the bulletin. Call the church office at 306-545-4051 for the next meeting date.
