Outreach Ministries

“Christ…made the Church his co-worker in the salvation of the world…Since salvation is offered to all, it must be made concretely available to all” (Pope John Paul II, Mission of the Redeemer). These ministries try to answer that call.

“And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” (Acts. 2:47)
