OUTREACH CORNER

This weekly piece is designed to support the two goals of the IHM Outreach Commission.  Those goals are to:

  1. Increase IHM engagement in Outreach – making better use of IHM’s many gifts to help those in need
  2. Increased awareness at IHM in the principles of more effective and lasting Outreach, and begin using these principles to evaluate and enhance our Outreach efforts over time.

We hope you follow this section weekly and learn with us about doing more impactful outreach.  This web site lists many parish Outreach initiatives that could use your help.  Please contact the listed ministry head or Scott Lowe lowe7530@outlook.com to find out how you can help.
