What We Do: The Gabriel Project is a parish-based ministry for pregnant women and their children offering emotional, spiritual, material, and financial support. Volunteers, which are referred to as Angels, are matched with pregnant moms with whom they make a connection with, to offer friendship and prayers during their pregnancy and beyond.
Time Commitment: Varies depending on whether we have a mom we are helping.
Volunteer Ages: Any age to be a prayer warrior for these moms and babies! To be an Angel, we request adult women.

What We Do: Our Sick & Homebound Extraordinary Ministry visits the homes of our Corpus Christi Parishioners, Encompass Rehabilitation Hospital and Adler Center for Caring patients each weekend. The Church teaches us to be merciful in various ways. Our ministry's corporal work of mercy visits each of our local sick and homebound with the Blessed Sacrament of Holy Communion every weekend.
Time Commitment: Sick & Homebound Extraordinary Ministers (S&H EMers) visit 3 parishioner homes or patient care facilities [on average] each month, ranging between 10 to 40 minutes (It all depends on how long you choose to stay and meet with each sick or homebound ... it goes by fast!). S&H EMers typically choose to schedule their visits immediately after the Mass service of their choosing.
Volunteer Ages: You must be a trained Extraordinary Minister in order to volunteer for this merciful ministry. Specific training will be provided.
