Outreach Services Team
St. Charles Outreach Services Team ministers to both local Wisconsin communities and abroad, organizing events and programs that bring together volunteers of all ages to engage in projects that better the living, learning, and general condition of all! Through events such as the monthly Bread of Life Community Meal, the seasonal gift and clothing drives, and grander projects such as funding and building a new chapel for the church community of La Sagrada Familia in the Dominican Republic, there are many ways to become involved. For more information about specific events or to become involved, please contact Terri Blazek, Outreach Services Team Chairperson, at 262-367-7608.
Opportunities to become involved as a volunteer to help those of the St. Charles Parish community include becoming involved in ministries such as the Meals to the Homebound, the Hospitality Ministry, or by volunteering at seasonal church events such as Fall Fest. For more information about service opportunities in St. Charles Parish, refer to the Stewardship under Serve Christ.
Hope Center Lunch Program
Located in downtown City of Waukesha, the Hope Center serves meals to those barely getting by with little or no income. Some attendees are homeless and are out on the street or in a shelter. With the need so great during the winter time, in addition to their evening meals, this facility also shares breakfast and lunches on Saturdays. Monthly our Outreach Group prepares, serves and cleans up after a lunch meal. If you would like to assist please register below. We can carpool from St. Charles Parish from 10am to 1:30 pm. Or you are welcome to drive directly to the Hope Center, 502 N. East Ave., Waukesha by 10:30 am. Children under 14 years of age need to be supervised by a parent.
