Global Outreach

We are a committee of parishioners tasked by our Parish Priest to administer a charity fund for the purpose of financially assisting committee approved projects across a broad geographical range of countries reflective of the current Parish demography.

Through the generosity of the parishioners, the GO Committee will provide financial support for small-scale, primarily education-based projects in developing and less economically developed countries on a one-time, medium or long-term basis as determined by the Committee.

The current GO Members are Fr Paul Friel, Joselito Benitez, Patricia Matthews, Brendan McGivern and Edna Jean-Richard.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment. For any further information or details, please contact a member of GO or email globaloutreach[at]
