Jesus calls us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. We have been blessed in many ways and God invites us to share those blessings with others. When our neighbor is in need we must be like the good seminarian, directing our time and resources to help them in whatever way we can. Our parish has many opportunities to help those in need. Please consider becoming a part of one of the ministries below to help your brother or sister in need.

This ministry has been formed to service the less fortunate in different ways: that is offering a Thanksgiving Meal to the homeless, collecting monies for stamps for the incarcerated. It assists the community of St. Joachim’s to be Christ’s hands, Christ’s feet. We are also working to bring together a stronger community within our parish by working together to serve the needs of those around us.
