Mission & Outreach
Jesus's command in Acts, Chapter One, is to be his witnesses for the local community (Jerusalem), the regional community (Judea, Samaria) and the international community (to the ends of the earth). Jesus also continually calls upon us to care for those who may need care, physically, emotionally and spiritually, Matthew 25, "I assure you, as often as you did it for one of my least, you did it for me." Our outreach serves the local and regional area; St. Christine's Soup Kitchen, Loaves and Fishes of Soutwest Detroit and Vista Marie in West Detroit.
Additionally we reach out in mission to areas of Kentucky assisting local parishes and agencies from cleaning, to painting, to carpentry to gardening & more. If you are interested in our Kentucky Mission please contact Patrick Young at (248) 672-7448.
St. Edith 2020 Kentucky Adult Mission Trip
The St. Edith Kentucky Mission Team is in the process of planning our April, 2020 Mission Trip to Kentucky. The dates under consideration for our next trip are:
- SUN-FRI April 19-24, 2020 or
- SUN-FRI April 26- May 1, 2020 or
- SUN-FRI May 3-8, 2020
All of these dates are after Easter in 2020. Actual date of the trip will be decided by the Mission Team members.
Our Mission Team currently needs an additional 5 team members to insure the success of our 2020 Mission trip to Kentucky. Anyone with normal household experience in landscaping, painting, cleaning, minor plumbing, carpentry and electrical repairs will be a welcome member of our Team. All work activities will take place at the homes of local residents in Williamsburg, KY and at the local Catholic parish. A willingness to serve those residents with financial or health challenges is far more important than home repair expertise. We also plan on spending some time with residents of a local nursing home.
We hope that you will consider joining our Kentucky Mission Team for 2020. You will meet some wonderful people in Kentucky and get to spend some quality time with your fellow parishioners.
