Outreach Service


St. Francis Outreach Committee Mission:
To identify needs in our community, our city, and the world
where our financial commitment and hands-on involvement aid in alleviating human suffering,
empower those in need to become self sufficient, and strengthen the love of Christ in areas we touch and within ourselves.


Each year the Outreach Committee promotes specific outreach projects and facilitates parishioner involvement. These projects include meals for the Salvation Army Grate Patrol, food drives for local families in need, school supplies drives, an annual Christmas toy drive and party for Transitional Housing clients, a ChristmasGrate Patrol 2013 diaper drive for a local shelter, clothing drives, and furnishing Transitional Housing apartments.

The St. Francis Vestry allocates funds to the Outreach Committee each year for hands-on activities and donations to organizations. Franciscans have been directly involved in most of the organizations to which we donate as volunteers or through special projects. Some of the major outreach emphases include:

St. Francis & South Sudan
Alternative House
Cornerstones (formerly Reston Interfaith)
Jackson-Feild Homes
Salvation Army Grate Patrol
Habitat for Humanity
Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington

SHARE of McLean
Transitional Housing Corporation (THC)
Virginia Hospital Center Medical Brigade

Committee meetings are usually held on the third Sunday of the month after the last service. We welcome you to join us.
