Improving the common good of our community

At the foundation of our faith is respect for the human person. Our Catholic teachings dictate that we ensure social justice by protecting the dignity of life and reducing social and economic inequalities. Sharing both material and spiritual goods is at the heart of these efforts.

  • Pick 7 Community Food Distribution: Once a quarter, our parish opens its doors to anyone who needs food. Each person through the door of any age can pick seven items from the available options. No judgment. No negative stigma - just joyful giving! This outreach is open to anyone, no questions asked. Contact the parish office for the next Pick 7 date.

  • Angel Tree: Our Angel Tree is an annual program during Christmas season to help those in need in Crown Point and surrounding communities. This program ensures the Christmas season is brighter for those less fortunate and is empowered by God's love and our will and desire to do God's work to help those in need.

  • Prayer Shawl Ministry: Ladies of the parish knit and crochet prayer shawls, lap covers and baby blankets to bring God’s love, peace and comfort to whomever receives them. As the ladies are working, they are praying for the recipient. All completed garments are blessed by Father Jim.

  • Outreach: Our Community assistance program will help with rent, mortgage or utility bills up to $50 providing that recipients are Crown Point residents or parishioners and also that they have not already been evicted or disconnected.

  • Soup Kitchen: Once a month, a group of parishioners travels to the St. Joseph Soup Kitchen in Hammond, Indiana to assist in providing a hot meal to those in need in the community. All ages are welcome and many helping hands are needed. Contact the parish office for the next outing date.
