Social Concerns Ministry

We strive to answer God’s call to act justly, love tenderly, and walk humbly with God. We do this by enlisting the time, talent, and treasure of our faith community to respond to human needs here and throughout the world.

Food Pantry

Each month on Thursday from 6-8 p.m., we provide non-perishable food items, paper goods, and some personal supplies to approximately 200 registered families to help supplement their needs and ease their worries. We also provide emergency food assistance as needed throughout the month.

Advent Giving Tree

Volunteers from every corner of St. Cletus Parish and friends in the community, join together to make Christmas a little brighter for hundreds of family each year. We reach out to St. Agatha’s, our sharing parish in Chicago’s inner city, as well as to the needy in our surrounding communities.

We offer our parish families an opportunity to share with those less fortunate. Our trees will be filled with purple tags (gifts) and white envelopes (grocery gift cards) with names of individuals from our sharing parish, St. Agatha’s, our food pantry, and others struggling in our community. This is a chance for you to do something for those who would not have a very merry Christmas without your generosity. With your help last year, our parish made Christmas a little brighter for over 1800 people! Thank you!
