Human Concerns and Needs Commission Projects

It is the time of year when we give thanks for all we have been given; our families, our jobs, our friends, all of which are gifts from God. He invites us to always share the gifts He has given us by helping those in need of the necessities. You  helped to provide a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, a needed item for a child at Christmas, and relief to a family in need. Here at St. Michael's we reach out to our larger community with our Outreach programs throughout the year but, in particular at this time of the year, we bring attention to those who need our help. 

Below is a link to information about the annual Gift Wrapping Party and other speical projects. Also on the linked page you will find a few of the ways our Outreach programs benefit the larger community. Your help and generosity are needed all year long!

If you have quetions about any of these or would like to volunteer to wrap gifts, contact Toni Dunning at 312-642-2498 or email tdunning@st-mikes.org.
