Light Up Someone’s Christmas is underway. Please follow the instructions on the bulbs. If you are unable to come to the church physically to get a light bulb consider making a donation online or purchasing twin, full or queen size bedding and having it mailed to the parish office to assist families in need.
Please consider making an online donation to help us assist those in need, especially those whose jobs are affected by COVID-19. You can make a donation by clicking the DONATE button at the top of the page or mail to the parish office, attention – Divine Mercy Outreach.
There are many ways to volunteer in Divine Mercy Outreach (Adults and Teens). Below are some teens giving their time to help! You can also read our newsletter to learn more or click on specific ministries within outreach.
Joseph Cawley organized and ran a toiletry drive for his Eagle Scout Project in June 2019 for Divine Mercy Outreach. What a blessing! This has been helping so many families throughout the year. There were so many toiletries that we shared them with Catholic Charities and other organizations. The pictures are just a small sample of all that was collected. Thank you so much and God bless you!
Thanks to Ian Beck for all his work to build new clothing racks for the Merciful Harvest event and the Little Flower Consignment sale for his Eagle Scout Project! What a blessing! This will help us to help others for many years to come! May God bless you! These racks are also used for our Little Flower Consignment sale and have been a great blessing!
Many Thanks to Catherine, Christine, Ryan and Brad for the putting together gift bags for those moving out of the shelter.
Thank you to James Nieven for his efforts to collect bedding for our Bed Ministry to help those in need for his Eagle Scout Project. Many families moving out of the shelter as well as those in our community who have no bed and are sleeping on the floor will be assisted by his efforts and the Scouts that helped him. We are so grateful to receive these items and thankful to all who donated them. God bless you!
Many thanks to Joe Karpovich for his efforts to collect toiletries to be given to the less fortunate for his Eagle Scout Project. Thanks to Joe, the Scouts who assisted with this and the generosity of Ashburn Farms neighborhoods many families in need will be assisted. Divine Mercy Outreach is so grateful for the large amount of toiletries and the organized manner in which we received them. God bless you!
Sincerely in Christ,

Project ideas for teens:
- Food drive for Backpack Buddies program to help feed children in need
- School supply drive to help children in need
- Laundry soap and toiletry drive to assist families in need
- New pillow and or mattress cover drive to support our bed ministry helping those in need
- Put together gift bags for the Bed Ministry to be given to the families moving out of the shelter.
Volunteers are needed to take items such as beds, bedding, kitchen tables and chairs, misc household items, groceries or other items to families in need. This is a wonderful way to show Christ’s love to others. Please consider helping those less fortunate.
Do you have a truck, trailer hitch(we have a trailer), SUV or minivan to help us transport beds and tables? Contact Karen Daniel at 806-341-1798 or firstname.lastname@example.org
