Social Action Commission

This ministry responds to the needs of those within our parish boundaries as well as hunger centers on the near West Side through donations from our parishioners. We meet the second Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the parishioners of Holy Family who respond so generously to our appeals. By providing everything from school supplies to food and Christmas gifts, you touch many people who desperately need to feel God’s love in a tangible way. Anyone who would like to join us in our ministry is always welcome!


The food pantry is always in need of the following items:

  • Tuna Fish
  • Canned Chicken
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Pork & Beans
  • Toilet Paper
  • Kleenex
  • Soap
  • Cleaning Products
  • Laundry Detergent
  • Cereal
  • Canned Pasta
  • Soup

Other food items and donations are accepted at different times during the year, such as Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Please watch the bulletin and the website for more details and specific information.
