OLW Ministries: Care & Outreach

Posted on June 15, 2021 by Published by

Ministries are the lifeblood of any great parish and, as we begin to reemerge from a 15-month COVID-induced hibernation period, we are looking to REIGNITE our great Ministries.

Our Lady of the Wayside Parish welcomes you to join our ministry family where you will find an opportunity to give of yourself by helping others in addition to growing personally/spiritually in our faith community. Below is a list of Care & Outreach Ministries. Next week, we’ll feature additional ministries.
