St. Gabriel Outreach & Care
Each Tuesday afternoon, St. Gabriel's Karpos ministry cooks and serves meals for the homeless in downtown Painesville. Compassion, listening and prayerfulness are among the gifts needed. High school age youth and adults are welcome 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. to assist.
St. Gabriel Food Pantry provides food to families in need in the Painesville, Mentor and Concord communities. The efforts of our many volunteers and donors assure that food is provided with sensitivity to our brothers and sisters in Christ. We are here to serve with love and compassion and no one with a need is refused help. While all of us are susceptible to hard times, we are here to support one another and follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society is an international Catholic lay organization offering person-to-person service to the needy and suffering. Our conference was organized in1986 and has about 40 members who visit the needy and answer calls from neighbors who need help with food, rent, utilities, medicine, clothing and more. We often refer clients to public and religious agencies and may also provide some financial aid when funds allow. We are mindful to be good stewards of funds entrusted to us. Typical clients are the unemployed, single parents, the sick, the disabled and handicapped. We prayerfully encourage clients to be active in helping themselves when possible.
Faith in Action
This ministry assists the frail and elderly of the parish. Friendly visits, caring phone calls, help with errands or driving to an appointment, these volunteers develop rich relationships with those of our parish who are in need.
