Outreach


Outreach Ministries refer to those ministries which extend beyond our doors and impact those who are in difficult places in their lives.   Please call the Office at 770-455-6523 to learn more about our Outreach Ministries.

Malachi’s Storehouse
Provides  a hot lunch starting at 11:30 a.m. and emergency groceries every Wednesday from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 pm for low-income families in our community. Volunteers are always needed to help pack and move groceries, translate, read to children, or organize household goods.

Maji Mazuri
The Kenya-based organization is composed of four interrelated programs: Education & Talent, Economic Empowerment, Community Development, and Mental & Physical Health. The programs address the root causes of poverty and focus on alleviating the ills present in the poverty-stricken community of the Mathare Valley slum, located in Nairobi, by empowering people to bring about change in their own lives.

Peachtree-Pine Men’s Shelter
St. Patrick’s collaborates with Kingswood United Methodist Church to provide dinner for 250-500 men at the Peachtree-Pine Street Men’s Shelter on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month.

Peachford Hospital
On the 3rd Sunday of every month, St. Patrick’s parishioners bring a church service to the patients at Peachford Hospital, many of whom have recently found themselves spiritually bankrupt through addiction or mental illness.

Shine a Light Ministry

Shine A Light (SAL is a community working together to do what we can to take action against DMST (domestic minor sex trafficking).  Through Awareness, we can take Preventative actions now.

The Problem:

  • Between 200-300 adolescent girls are victimized each month in the state of GA
  • Pimps have been known to demand as high as 45 buyers per night per child during peak times
  • Pimps exploit child hunger – 988,394 children in GA qualify for free or reduced lunch

A Partial Solution:

  • Lower the demand through Awareness
  • Prevent  DMST by providing two on one help to  vulnerable girls ages 11-13 before they can be victimized
  • Feed hungry girls during the summer when there is no free lunch program
  • Teach girls how to be safe through class instruction teaching  warning signs and how to harm an attacker in the first 3 seconds to get away.

We join with other organizations in GA by doing  our part to eventually eradicate this heinous DMST crime happening in our own back yards.  Read more here and click on our latest newsletter.

Summer’s Landing Assisted Living
St. Patrick’s parishioners provide a once-a-month Sunday morning service to the elderly residents of the Summer’s Landing Community to bring them hope and comfort at a time when they are often lonely and afraid. We also welcome residents to join us for Holy Eucharist on Sunday mornings and bring them to the church.
