Social Concerns

Food Pantry     Parishioners bring non-perishable food items to church on the fourth Sunday of each month. These are taken to the Catholic Food Pantry at St. Mary’s, where volunteers help in the distribution of these foods.

The Defiance County Furniture Bank is a nondenominational faith based service ministry that provides basic furniture, sofas and chairs, beds, bed frames, bed linens, electrical appliances, and kitchen wares to families in need in the Defiance County area.

Prison Ministry     Deacon John Weber and John Drown                                                                                         Mission Statement: The Catholic Correction Ministry of Northwest Ohio (CCMNO) is a group of dedicated Catholic men and women who desire to carry out the Gospel mandate, “when I was in prison you visited me…” (Matt 25:36) by bringing God’s healing love to hurting people so that they experience the grace and forgiveness of God.
How we minister:
Every Thursday evening teams of CCMNO volunteers conduct Catholic services where we pray and share songs and sacred scripture with the men and women inmates at CCNO. Mass is offered often. Some volunteers also visit inmates one to one as a ministering presence. For further information contact:  Deacon John Weber at 419-782-2776 or John Drown at 419-782-7121.

St. Vincent de Paul    The society offers tangible assistance to those in need on a person-to-person basis. This aid may take the form of intervention consultation, or often through direct dollar or in-kind service. The society recognizes that it must assume a role of advocacy for those who are defenseless or voiceless by appointment only. Please call St. Mary Catholic Church 782-2776 for an appt.
