Human Concerns

The St. Margaret Mary Human Concerns Committe is motivated by the call to practice our Christian Catholic faith by engaging in works of charity and by pursuing social justice.

Vision Statement

To be the "heart and hands of Jesus" by recognizing human suffering, loneliness, and the lack of basic human needs by providing emotional, spiritual, and financial support to individuals in our parish family, our community and in the world.

Meetings

Held at 6:30 on the 3rd Wednesday of each month(except July and December) in the parish office.
