Social Concerns

Contact: the parish office

Phone: 919-772-5524


Our Social Concerns Committee helps people answer God's call to love our neighbor by providing concrete ways to serve those in need and to build better communities. Our mission is based on an awareness of the church's teaching about human dignity, social justice, and solidarity.

There are a variety of opportunities for parishioners to become involved with each year. Some are ongoing, others are offered one time per year. Many can be supported by the whole family.

Meals for the Homeless

Our parish ministers to the homeless in downtown Raleigh and in the Garner area. Volunteers prepare and/or serve food for a monthly meal delivered to the homeless at the Oak City Cares center near Moore Square in downtown Raleigh, donate used or new winter clothing, blankets, boots, and kerosene heaters during the winter months for the homeless in Garner and downtown Raleigh.


We nourish a respect for life by proclaiming that every human life is uniquely created in the image and likeness of God. Each person who receives God’s gift of life deserves respect from the time life begins at fertilization through the point of natural death. During this life we have responsibilities to God, to ourselves and to others. As part of our greater community, we must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence. All are welcome to participate in our committee’s activities.

Catholic Parish Outreach Food Pantry

CPO, a Catholic Charities program, serves the Triangle community by providing emergency food assistance and, when possible, children's clothing and baby items such as formula and diapers. Volunteers assist with parish collections of food, diapers, children's clothing, etc. CPO needs volunteers from 9 AM to 1:30 PM Monday to Saturday. Some volunteers sew, knit, or crochet baby blankets for distribution at CPO. For more information visit CPO's web site at
