Holy Cross Catholic Church
                              Outreach Ministry
Our outreach community organization has been an integral part of Holy Cross since the inception of the parish in 2004. Our ministry is to assist those people in need who reside within the communities of Lake Stevens and Granite Falls. Those needs may include utility assistance, rental assistance, food, or some other form of help. Often, the most valuable service is provided by the many volunteers who give of time to listen and support those who feel that they are alone. Many of these people just need someone to give them loving attention by listening and not judging. Loss of hope and loneliness are very real and difficult problems to help. Yet God calls us to relieve spiritual hunger as well as the physical one.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Who do we serve?

The Outreach program serves anyone who needs our help in the Lake Stevens and Granite Falls area.

2. What is the main purpose of the Outreach Program

The outreach program is not actually a food bank. While we provide each client with a bag of food to get by for a few days, our primary task is to help the poor in this area who need aid in paying their utility and rent bills.

We also operate the Food Bank for the City of Granite Falls, located at 215 Granite Falls Avenue, Granite Falls, WA. Our hours of operation are the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month, from 9:30AM until 11AM.

3. What does my contribution go towards?
Your contributions are directed completely to the needs of our clients; bags of food and helping pay utilities or rent for our clients

4. How do I get involved with helping out?
If you wish to be a volunteer with the Outreach program, please contact Stephanie Sherry at the Holy Cross parish office at 360-691-2636.
