At St. John Vianney Parish Outreach, it is our mission to be the hands of Christ in our community by serving others. With hands ready to work, hearts ready to love, and faith made visible through action, we joyfully seek to aid and strengthen our brothers and sisters who find themselves in need. Parish Outreach seeks to embody compassion through our Christian Service, Food Pantry, and Genesis House. We invite families and individuals currently encountering challenging times to contact Parish Outreach, so that we may offer our support.
Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
