This Committee meets in the rectory periodically. The membership consists of the Pastor, one male parishioner, and one female parishioner. The lay people in this organization assist the Pastor regarding difficult situations of a severe financial nature that people, particularly in our parish, are undergoing. Members of the Committee investigate the matter and bring their findings to the Pastor and the Committee. Much aid has been given through the money donated by our people through the poor box.
Periodically, a brief article is published in the parish bulletin in regard to the poor box donations. Obviously, the names of individuals who have benefited from these donations are not revealed. The Pastor does indicate funds given to such organizations as the Missionaries of Charity, poor inner-city parishes, etc. For further information, please contact Thomas Butler through the rectory at 610-539-5572.
