We're called to share our time, talents, and resources

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:8-10)

Interfaith Shelter Network

This is a moving shelter for the working homeless of Orange County. The residents of the shelter move about every two weeks to a hosting church, where they stay and receive meals and assistance in locating jobs. Other items needed are: soap, razors, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bathroom tissue, shampoo, conditioner, combs, and brushes. Items can be placed underneath the offering table in the church.   For more information, see Meredythe Hutchinson.

Western Service Workers Association (WSWA)

We collect food and toiletry donations weekly at the 9:30 and 12:30 masses for WSWA. Donations can be left at the church door closest to the outdoor-mass tent. Donations needed include healthy canned and dried food, toiletries, sanitizing and cleaning supplies, diapers (adult and children) and baby wipes. This collection supports working-poor families of our community and is distributed by Western Service Workers Association of Santa Ana.

  • Fr. Art will take pictures of all donations and pass them on to appropriate members of the PC.
  • Fr. Art will work with volunteers from the 12:30 mass to assure donations are dropped off at WSWA in a timely manner.
  • In the event there’s a Sunday without volunteers for drop off, Fr. Art will place donations in the confessional until we can find time/volunteers for drop off.

A Little Information About WSWA

Western Service Workers Association (WSWA) is a free and voluntary, private, unincorporated membership association which operates on an all-volunteer basis and does not accept government funds. WSWA serves Orange County’s lowest paid workers; domestic workers, temporary and part-time workers, “workfare” workers, independent contractors, landscapers, and other low-paid service workers.

WSWA members join together to provide a means of survival through a benefit program including emergency food and clothing, non-emergency dental care, preventative medical care, job information and more. To help please call 714-835-9961.

Special Request from WSWA: Western Service Workers Association needs volunteers with cars to help pick up and distribute food donations to hungry people in need who don’t drive. Days/times they need help with include Fridays at around 10:30 am and Sunday mornings to pick up perishable food (no later than 10:30 or 11:00 am) and other volunteers to deliver food to hungry folks in the community Sundays 12-3 pm. Even if people can volunteer once in a while, not necessarily every Sunday, that is helpful. Distribution is done in a no-contact manner. If you can help, please contact WSWA at 714-835-9961.

Pop Tabs

Pop tabs from canned drinks are collected and given to Children’s Hospital of Orange County who will turn them into cash and donate the amount to the Orange County Ronald McDonald House. After you save your tabs, also remember to save your can to bring in to church for our recycling program!
