Outreach Commission

 “Our social mission should be integrated throughout parish life. As the story of the Last Judgment in Matthew’s Gospel reminds us, in the end we will all be judged by how we have cared for the least among us. This means that the Catholic social mission is an essential part of the faith life of every able Catholic. It must be woven into education programs so that all Catholics learn about Catholic social teaching. It must be reflected in the prayer and worship of our faith community. And it must include a wide range of opportunities for members of our parishes to act on the social dimensions of our faith.  In the role of leader/organizer/planner for the Outreach Commission, the critical task at hand is to organize, invite, recruit, orchestrate and create opportunities for the parish—and all of its members—to become engaged."

The Outreach Commission is one of four parish commissions under the auspices of the Pastoral Council. The Outreach Commission is charged with ensuring that Christ's Gospel command to care for the 'least of these' flows from all parts of parish life. The commission supports growth of ministries at St. Max that support the vision of Catholic Social Teaching and the Corporal & Spiritual Works of Mercy as set forth by the Church. The commission acts as a sounding board, advising the pastoral staff, and assisting in efforts to support the service life of our parish.

The Outreach Commission is currently meeting.
