The purpose of the Human Concerns Committee is to discern the needs of the people in the parish and wider community, especially the poor, and identify resources to meet those needs, while enlisting the active support and participation of parish members.
We currently have about twenty members. New members are always welcome! We are in need of volunteers to help with our upcoming projects. We do not meet during the summer. Please consider joining us!
Meetings are the second Tuesday of every month at 12:00 noon in Holy Family Hall.

CLARISSE & HER FIGHT FOR LIFE
As parishioners, we’re very familiar with her warm smile and musical talent! Some may be surprised to know she’s also in a fight for her life battling End Stage Renal Failure. Diagnosed in 2015 with renal cancer, she underwent surgery, removing the entire cancerous kidney. Shortly after, her other kidney began to fail and she eventually needed emergency dialysis. She's continued dialysis for the past couple of years. Although very difficult, she tries to make the best of it with her joyful spirit! She needs a kidney transplant and is asking for our help.
