Mission & Outreach

1. Recruitment and organization of volunteers for outreach events.
2. Internal publicity about our mission partners, our involvement with them, and their needs.
3. Recommendation of recipients for Redeemer's Outreach Grants and recipients for the All-Parish Christmas and Easter Offerings.
