Social Ministries

St. John of Rochester Church, has many ministries & outreach programs to meet the needs in our world. 

​​The Christian Service Committee helps to meet the needs of the poor in our community, especially with the Sharing Tree Project and connecting to the Perinton Food Shelf.

 

Our Prison Ministry helps to supply religious materials to those who are in jail, but seeking to practice their faith.

 

The Community Garden provides much needed produce to our neighbors at Holy Apostles parish in Rochester and creates a green space on the church property.

 

Donations to House of Mercy help to provide meals and needed supplies to many who are served by Sister Grace and her ministries.

 

Our work with Habitat for Humanity provides homes for those who have committed to putting in the work to make that happen for their family. 

 

Advent House cares for the dying with dignity and grace.  

 

Lion’s Club takes our used eyeglasses and helps bring them to those in need.

 

Communion Ministers bring the Eucharist to those who are confined to Nursing homes and hospitals each week.

 

We have a joint ministry with Saint's Place of St. Louis Parish in Pittsford. Saint's Place resettles refugees in the Rochester area. A clothing closet is housed at St. John of Rochester which provides clothing and supplies for these families.

 

St. John of Rochester volunteers also tutor children through several programs. There are many more opportunities that can be found. The list is very long, but each of these actions by others helps to care for the needy in our midst.
