Pastoral Assistant & Director of Social Outreach
The Outreach Ministry mission is twofold: (1) to those in our parish community who find themselves in need of assistance – whether through on-site or referral assistance to local agencies and (2) to encourage and incorporate as many SEAS parishioners to serve to our parish and community through hands-on volunteer efforts as they arise within our parish and community.
We supply our food pantry and other ministries by generous donations from our friends and parishioners. To donate, please drop items in the Black Bins in the Narthex of the Church. To donate financially, click here.
Our ministry is only possible because of our wonderful volunteers. If you feel called to serve, please contact the Outreach Office at 817-623-2424. Volunteers must be Safe Environment trained.
If you, or someone you know, is in need of assistance, we’re here to help. The Outreach office takes calls from Monday-Wednesday 10-2pm and can be reached at 817-623-2424. As some volunteers are working remotely due to COVID-19, please leave a message and someone will return your call.
Please feel free to reach out through the submission form below. Submitting a message in no way guarantees the ability to assist the client, rather this gives the volunteers the ability to reach out to the client during normal office hours. Thank you and God bless!
SEAS Thanksgiving Food Drive, Winter Coat Drive, Christmas Angel Trees, Dignity Closet drives, Summer time service, and other special projects as may arise within our parish and community.

Volunteers can help to decorate the tree, and sort and deliver the gifts. For current volunteer opportunities or to donate, contact the SEAS Outreach Office at 817-623-2424.
