All volunteers will be working under the supervision of our Buildings and Grounds Committee.

In addition to a very successful Coat Drive, the St. Haralambos Outreach Committee has committed itself to offering a meal every month at a local food kitchen, and is currently examining other projects. We encourage you to help with the food kitchen or to become a member of the Outreach Committee!
DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE...The Outreach Committee is working on a project to bring a tasty meal and a friendly visit to members of our Saint Haralambos community who have difficulty getting out of the house. If you know someone who would appreciate a meal and a visit, please call Father Dean or Father George with that name.
