This commission seeks the growth of the parish as servants to the human needs of the people of the Warren area. They are concerned both with immediate needs such as food, clothing, and shelter, and with systemic issues such as economic justice, world peace, and discrimination against minorities.
Committee for the Disabled This committee is concerned with issues that directly affect the disabled of the parish. They also sponsor a Mass for the Disabled once a year, usually held in the fall and seek to make parishioners aware of the special needs of the disabled.
Parish Health Ministry This committee promotes health and wellness. They are active in community health screenings at the St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen.
Blood Drive Twice a year, volunteers from Blessed Sacrament aid the Red Cross when they use our church as a donor site. Volunteers provide snacks and atmosphere for blood donors.
St. Vincent de Paul Volunteers of this group provide food and other necessities to the less fortunate of our community. Volunteers also work in the soup kitchen once a month, usually on the third Thursday, cooking and serving a hot meal. During the holiday season they provide Christmas food baskets to over 100 families in cooperation with the Salvation Army.
Christmas in July During the busy summer months, the local service agencies are in need of our help. So they provide us with "wish lists" of items they need, and parishioners select a card from the "tree", purchase the items, wrap them and place them back under the tree. The committee then delivers them to each of the agencies.
Nursery This service is available during the Sunday morning liturgies. A "Co-op" approach is used to provide adequate staffing.
Transportation Committee This committee provides transportation services to persons who cannot drive to church. Time commitments to volunteer for this ministry can be as little as once a year.
Mass of Remembrance A liturgy is celebrated on All Soul's Day, and on a Tuesday during Lent, to remember the deceased of the parish who have died in the last year.
Prayer Chain A network of parishioners prays for special needs and intentions and are apprised of such needs through a phone chain.
Eucharistic Bread Baking Parishioners bake the Eucharistic Bread for special liturgies.
Stations of the Cross Each Friday during Lent the last journey of Christ is remembered and walked in the church. A Lay Leader of Prayer presides.
