The Ministry of Outreach at St. Gregory's has focused on a small number of "signature" ministries. The guiding wisdom has been to focus our resources with the intent of creating the largest possible impact with our efforts. As we grow we intend to continue to support these signature ministries, however, we also envision the Outreach Commission as the ministry that guides St. Gregory's into living ever more faithfully into our vision of "Sharing God's love by caring for each other and all in need with the relentless compassion of Christ "
In response to this vision, the Outreach Commission:
These are our core ministries.
St. Gregory's Brown Bag Ministry
Boca Helping Hands, Inc.
Church of the Holy Redeemer (Episcopal)
Saint Laurence Chapel
St. Gregory's Migrant Ministry
The Haiti Project
These are additional ministries we'd like to affirm and encourage.
Soup Kitchen at Caridad (Boynton Beach)
Anne de Wolfe
Samaritan Counseling Centers
Boca Rehab Center
Boca Respite Volunteers
