Parish Outreach Ministry
Parish Outreach Ministry is identified by the actions that our faith community takes to live out the Gospel we proclaim and to grow in love with God and neighbor. It aims to foster greater outreach and advocacy efforts, to educate parishioners to serve those who are poor, vulnerable, or in need, and to provide opportunities for spiritual growth.
While Parish Outreach Ministry team members can be "doers" their primary tasks would be that of leaders, organizers and planners, creating opportunities for all members of our parish to be involved in the social mission of the Church.
This is a new and developing ministry. For more information please contact Jessica Schumacher or Pat Mertz in the parish office.
This committee meets on the fourth Monday of the month at 7:00 pm.

St. Patrick’s Rummage House
1040 14th Ave
St. Patrick’s Rummage House was started in 1965. It provides quality, useable clothing, furniture, appliances, electronics, books, toys, etc.; a way to recycle merchandise and help families provide for themselves with dignity. All merchandise is generously donated by the community and is very moderately priced.
Occasionally, excess clothing is delivered to The Orphan Grain Train. Referrals for assistance come from Head Start, Health & Human Services, DOVES, Schools, Panhandle Community Services and King’s Daughters. Thru these referrals, items are given away. Give Away’s are also offered in August for “Back to School” and “Pre-Christmas” in December.
The Rummage House Volunteer Staff sort and price donations on Monday and Wednesday 8 – 11 am and Wednesday evenings 5 – 7. Selling days are Friday and Saturday 9 am – 3 pm. It is with enthusiasm, diligence and good organization of the Rummage House Volunteer Staff that make this sharing a reality!
