Christ The Bread of Life Parish
Our social justice ministry works very closely with the Archdiocese of Hartford to help those in need in our Parish, our community, and our Archdiocese.
Care for the sanctity of every life and knowing that life begins in the womb are two concerns in the heart of every pro-lifer. Members of this ministry may attend or sponsor pro-life masses and vigils...may participate in sidewalk praying or counseling before abortion providers...may provide assistance to mothers who choose to keep their babies, but are under pressure to abort...and may attend the National Pro-Life March in Washington D.C. during January. It is important that this ministry also update parishioners on any governmental activity concerning the sanctity of life. We also hold a baby shower to collect items for mothers in need.
We are looking to revive this ministry. We are looking for nurses or retired nurses who would like to participate in events like blood pressure screenings, blood drives, and things of this nature.
Reach out to our Parishioners who have lost a loved one, either through cards, a home visit, or just being a person they can talk to.
Blessed Sacrament Campus is home to the parish food pantry. Volunteer to pick up the donations from Ascension Campus and help sort the food and stock the shelves. The food pantry is open twice a month for those in need. This is a most worthy service as Jesus said, "Feed my lambs”!
Christ the Bread of Life is continuing to run and eventually expand St. Ann’s Soup kitchen. They serve lunch Monday – Friday. Volunteers are always welcome. This is a very fulfilling ministry to be involved in.
