The Social Action Committee is a group of parishioners who have been meeting for many years to help those people in our community who may be experiencing financial difficulty. It is one way we show our faith to “love one another….”.
Our main source of income is financial donations received during our four collections yearly. These donations are used to pay utilities, buy food and clothing, pay medical bills, and any other financial needs that we are made aware of. We also purchase clothing for the clients of the Advocates for the Homeless and Needy Program. We are an ongoing source of assistance to Catholic Social Services of Bucks County when no other help if available.
Our food collections with donations by parishioners at the entrances to church or chapel are delivered weekly to Catholic Social Services by members of the Social Action Committee.
In August of each year we sponsor a “Stuff the Bus” drive at which time parishioners donate school items for needy children sponsored by the United Way of Bucks County.
We sponsor an Annual Coat and Sweater Drive collecting at least 1000 gently used or new clothing items which are distributed to local social service agencies and given to those in need.
Our Annual Turkey Drive provides over 200 turkeys and food items to various local agencies who distribute to the needy.
Our Shared Meal Program provides meals each month to the clients of the Advocates for the Homeless and Those in Need in Bucks County. Our members purchase, prepare, and distribute these “to go” meals and provide a nutritious meal for at least 40 of their clients. This is accomplished either in the church kitchen or in individual member's homes.
We always welcome new members and are most appreciative of our volunteers and the support of our church community. Coordinates activities in providing services and goods for those in need within the parish and also outside the local parish. Some involvements are Aid for Friends, Red Cross Homeless Shelter, Catholic Social Services, and more.
|The Catholic Women of Bucks (CWoB) Giving Circle is a new initiative which funds local organizations in our area that reflect our Catholic faith and assist the community. Members of the circle give monetary donations, which are collectively given to local organizations.|

The giving circle meets two to three times a year, to hear about the organizations to be funded, collect and award the funding. The giving circle provides the opportunity for Catholic women to gather, engage in the local community and grow stronger in our faith!Back to Top
