We would like to invite you to sponsor a child from our sister parish in Las Termas, Argentina. Our Lady of Perpetual Help parish runs many programs for the elderly and children. One of them is a soup kitchen program. The “comedores,” so called by the locals, are providing a simple meal for the poorest children of the parish, twice a day. The cost of two meals is approximately 50 cents a day per child. This is roughly $15 per month, or $180 per year. As you discern your commitment to this worthy cause, remember the innocent ones, perhaps you might welcome one into your family.
Please complete this form to "adopt" a child.
The AIDS Ministry provides compassionate
caring and ongoing assistance to our sisters and brothers living with
HIV/AIDS as well as their family and friends.
It may be as simple as lending an ear while sharing a cup of coffee or as
involved as trying to fix a leaky roof.
It can be as fun as playing a game or as necessary as grocery shopping,
cleaning a yard, or transportation to a doctor appointment. Although there
is a need for those willing to provide direct, hands on assistance to those
with the disease, there is a place for everyone in our ministry.
All are welcome. Time commitment varies according to your schedule.
For further information about this compassionate ministry, please contact Bob Martin at 770-986-0111.

My Sister's Closet provides the use of gently used First Communion dresses, long and short formals and wedding gowns free
of charge to all ladies in need.

RENEW 2011 is about to begin its fall program. The focus of these meetings will be the new Roman Missal. As the Church presents a new translation of the mass for us to use, we are invited to renew our own understanding, commitment and spirituality of the Eucharist. I’d invite every adult in the parish to consider joining a group if you don’t have one already. You’re always welcome to come onboard and participate in this great program. You not only have the chance to share your faith and grow in your understanding but also to meet new friends and create new ties to the community.
The Society of St.
Vincent de Paul offers tangible assistance to those in need on a
person-to-person basis. This aid may take the form of intervention,
consultation, or often through direct dollar or in-kind service. An essential
precept of the Society's work is to provide help while conscientiously
maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served. The Society
recognizes that it must assume, also, a role of advocacy for those who are
defenseless or voiceless. Some 12 million persons are helped annually by
Vincentians in the United States.
