What is Parish Social Ministry?

Parish Social Ministry, also known as Outreach, is about people living out their baptismal call to love and serve one another, as it is written…"As I have loved you, so you must love one another." ~ Gospel of St. John 13:34.  It follows and upholds the The 7 Themes of Catholic Social Teaching.
