"...there is a growing awareness of the exalted dignity proper to the human person, since he stands above all things, and his rights and duties are universal and inviolable. Therefore, there must be made available to all men everything necessary for leading a life truly human, such as food, clothing, and shelter..."

Following a May 2014 Homelessness Discussion Night hosted by the Life, Justice and Peace Commission, volunteers met to think of ways to assist people on the streets of Seattle. Their first project was assembling care packets to hand out to people in need.
The packets include a variety of supplies and gifts, and are made available to parishioners to keep on hand and distribute as they encounter those in need. You can help with this effort by donating small items that can be included in the packets. Suggested items include socks, toiletries, feminine supplies, snacks and prayer cards or encouraging notes. Donations can be dropped off in the marked box in the church entryway or at the parish office. Packets are periodically distributed after Mass as they become available and can be picked up anytime at the parish office.
