We believe a community needs more than government safety nets. We aim to help stabilize families in need. Most of whom are worried about losing the basics of life including food, shelter and clothing. Outreach strives to help all those in need within our community regardless of religious affiliations. Partners in Outreach is an effort to widen the circle of parishioners who form a safety net for those among us who are temporarily living at the edge of despair. In the words of Pope Francis we are attempting to "open up horizons of hope, with our tenderness and love".

Prayer Shawl & Quilt The participants of St. John the Evangelist Prayer Shawl Ministry have found a new way to connect with God – through their knitting and crocheting. They combine their love of knitting and crocheting into a prayerful ministry that reaches out to those in need of comfort. Prayer becomes meditation and an awareness of God’s presence in our lives. The actual knitting and crocheting of the shawl becomes a prayerful practice. Many blessings are knitted into every shawl which is a tangible symbol of an inclusive unconditionally loving God who enfolds the recipient of the shawl. Our product is a shawl but our purpose is prayer.
