Outreach Ministries

Our parish is very involved in efforts in the community to support those in need.  To learn more, please ask our parish office to put you in touch with representatives for these ministries.

Leavenworth Interfaith Community Hope

The Leavenworth Interfaith Community of Hope offers programs for those in Leavenworth living in poverty that many of our parishioners support.   Welcome Central provides instructions about daily living skills, information about social service providers, access to job seeking skills, assistance in getting personal documents and transportation to helping agencies and other essential services.  The Day Center provides a space to safely gather during the day to access equipment and facilities for basic needs.  The Day Center provides 2 meals a day and is always in need of contributions.  The Night Shelter offers those within Leavenworth County with no place to go or in need of temporary emergency shelter a warm, safe place for men, women, and – whenever possible – families to stay. The Night Shelter is able to operate because of a network of volunteers. It takes 70 volunteers each week four our night shelter to operate.  Learn more at:  https://lvcommunityofhope.org/

St. Vincent de Paul Ministry

Several of our parishioners directly support the Saint Vincent Clinic in Leavenworth.  Saint Vincent and Duchesne Clinics are doctors’ offices for very low-income people who have no insurance and live in Leavenworth and Wyandotte Counties. Often called “safety-net” clinics, Saint Vincent and Duchesne Clinics provide the same services as most family doctors in a welcoming, compassionate environment. The difference is that our patients have no insurance, not even Medicaid or Medicare, and no way to pay for their care.  Learn more about the clinic at:  https://www.caritasclinics.org/
