St Bernard’s community outreach mission is to serve people in need. The parish leadership collaborates with our members and other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those they serve, because in them we see the face of Christ. The Pastoral Leadership encourages members of the group to continue their compassionate and uniquely personal works of charity with a “spirit of creativity”.
St Bernard’s Parish outreach serves service organizations helping the homeless, abused individuals, working poor, spiritually needy people, homeless students within the Appleton Public School District and others in need. Most of all we continue to assist needy people by listening, advising, referring and praying with them to bring them closer to Christ.
We welcome new members to join the mission of serving persons in need through volunteer efforts and contributions or both. Involvement can be based on your time availability at any level and desire to help. The outreach team has office hours on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 10 am and 12 pm to meet and assist those in need. Anyone can join or inquire about the outreach team by obtaining information from the parish office.
