Outreach Ministries

Outreach Team

This team serves to help raise awareness of opportunities to volunteer, serve, and if needed, serve on Boards of community groups in Crystal Lake.  In addition, they oversee the funds given for outreach purposes.
This newly appointed team has the long term plan to create some type of fund raiser to increase funds available to help those in need in our community on a local, state and national level.

Crystal Lake Food Pantry

St. Mary’s has been involved with the Crystal Lake Food Pantry since 1982 as a charter member, and is one of twenty churches involved in providing food and personal products to our local residents.

Each month, St. Mary’s staffs a day at the pantry serving 40-65 families. Volunteers help families shop for items, stock the shelves, and do light cleaning. Shifts are divided so that each worker only needs to donate about 3 hours a month.

For more information or to serve, contact Cate Williams here or Chris Bednaroski here

Christmas Basket Program

St. Mary’s participates in the Christmas Basket Program organized by the Revive Center for Housing and Healing. This is a wonderful opportunity for members to help some of the most impoverished families in our metropolitan area through the purchase gift cards or Christmas gifts. Through this ministry, approximately, thirty individuals receive much joy and love each Christmas morning!
