The God and Neighbor ministry at St. Raphael is a group of parishioners who assist others with transportation to Mass and doctor’s appointments. Volunteers offer to drive as their schedule allows. It could be once a month or more often. The team provides useful concrete assistance to parishioners who don’t have transportation or aren’t able to drive for medical or age reasons.
Why should you consider helping? Certainly, it’s deeply appreciated, and a good deed. It’s nice knowing you helped someone. But Janet Schirripa shared two stories that suggest something deeper happens in these encounters.
