MISSIONS IN THE COMMUNITY

St. Michael's Social Ministry Committee is involved with the following ministries designed to serve, feed, clothe, build, befriend and educate and advocate. We are able to accomplish this through the generous gifts of money, donations, time and talent from the members and friends of St. Michael's.

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY - St. Michael's is part of a consortium of churches known as Holy Hammers. Each spring the congregation provides a financial donation and volunteer labor to help build a house in the St. Paul area.

MEALS ON WHEELS - We have two teams of volunteers that help deliver a hot nutritious meal to the homebound in the community. We also provide a yearly financial gift to support the work of this program.

BANDAGE ROLLING AND QUILTING - Second and fourth Wednesdays of every month a group of members roll bandages and make quilts that are given to a local crisis nursery and Lutheran World Relief.

BLOOD DRIVE - In October, St. Michael's hosts a blood drive for members of the congregation and community to help ensure an adequate supply for our region's American Red Cross.                  

LOAVES AND FISHES - Every other month members of St. Michael's go to Holy Rosary Catholic Church in South Minneapolis to prepare and serve approximately 350 people who rely on the program for a hot, nutritious meal. Funding for the meal comes through donations from members.

CLOTHING DRIVE - Each Spring, members clean out their closets providing clothes to various organizations in Ramsey county.

KEYSTONE FOOD SHELF, HAMLINE - St. Michael's provides volunteers and monetary support to Keystone Community Services, which provides food in our area. We continually provide information about hunger in the Twin Cities, most especially during March Minnesota Food Share. We also have daily volunteers package and label donated Panera Bread the food shelf distributes.

SANDWICH MAKING - One Sunday each month we make 400 sandwiches that are distributed by Union Gospel Mission to day-workers who come to their facility for help with food.

REZEK HOUSE - St. Michael's is one of several congregations who help sponsor Rezek House, a transitional housing facility in St. Paul for homeless teenagers. The congregation provides a yearly stipend to help offset operating costs, a yearly "shower" to help equip the apartments, and volunteers to help staff the program.
