Precious Blood

Pawleys Island

Outreach

The Outreach Ministry at Precious Blood of Christ parish includes fourteen committees whose social mission is characterized by a love for the poor and vulnerable, ensuring that people have the basic human necessities of life. We are called to continue Christ’s mission of compassionate love, service, and justice in our community.

The committees under the Outreach umbrella range from adult literacy to social services, and are in place to address the corporal works of mercy where possible.

To “feed the hungry and give drink to the thirsty,” we have established Father Pat’s Lunch Kitchen, which provides a hot meal every Wednesday and a soup/sandwich lunch every Thursday and breakfast every Saturday at Founder’s Hall. The Holiday Food Distribution program oversees the acquisition and distribution of food to needy families in Pawleys Island at Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Meals on Wheels provides meals to the elderly and disabled people in the community. Adult Literacy assists those who wish to improve their reading and writing skills. Another education-related committee involves volunteering at Teach My People, an after-school and summer enrichment program which serves “at-risk” students and their families. To “shelter the homeless,” we have a liaison with Habitat For Humanity. The Prison Ministry provides volunteers to the Georgetown County Detention Center to assist the Sheriff’s office with inmate re-entry training. The Respect Life committee promotes the dignity of human life through prayer, communication, and education. They provide material support for women facing unplanned pregnancies through organizations such as Birthright of Georgetown and Catholic Charities. The Ecumenical committee plans community-wide programs and services with the other churches in Pawleys Island. The Legislative Issues committee reviews all federal, state and/or local legislation for possible action and informs the community about the impact of such legislation. The Human Resources committee helps with organizational and personal development for all committees and provides assistance for employment concerns in the community. The Transportation committee provides rides for parishioners without other means of attending services or meeting doctor appointments. The Social Services committee evaluates all inquiries for assistance from the community and authorizes parish resources to pay for emergency needs as required.

There are over one hundred parishioners who actively participate across the Outreach committees. We are always in need of volunteers and invite you to consider where you could be of assistance, especially in the Prison Ministry.
