Assistance Center of Towson Churches:

Our parish is an active member of ACTC, an organization of over 40 churches offering emergency aid to those who are in need. Services include distribution of food; financial help for rent, utilities and medical supplies; clothing assistance; mentoring; back to school supplies for children; and meals for the homeless.

Food Closet

Parishioners supply the Food Closet with monthly donations of nonperishable food. This committee manages the storage and distribution of food which is given directly to the needy and to distribution centers in the Baltimore area. Cash donations are always welcome.

Giving Tree/Adopt-A-Family

Giving Tree/Adopt-A-Family supports 17 Baltimore City and County agencies during Advent. The specific needs of these agencies are placed on ornaments on Christmas trees in the narthex and school. Three of the agencies refer very needy families which are “adopted” by parish groups and families, school classrooms and businesses. Volunteers are always needed and can contact Stephanie Boblooch, Fmb115@comcast.net
