Connecting those who can help with those in need.
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”
1 Peter 4:10
This ministry focuses on connecting those who can help with those in need. As a stewardship parish, “Service” is one of our four pillars. Parishioners are encouraged to share their time and talents with others. Parishioners are encouraged to visit this site often to volunteer for opportunities to serve. Do you know of someone or an organization that needs volunteer help or do you have questions/suggestions? If so, contact the parish office at 503.638.1579.
Please consider sharing your time and talents by volunteering for one of these current opportunities described below:

RCP volunteers feed approximately 150 people each month – providing both a hot meal and sack “lunch” meals. Hot meals have included everything from homemade enchiladas to chili and are served during lunchtime. The sack lunches are often the only evening meal for the person in need and are handed out as they leave the facility for the day.
When are the monthly efforts completed by RCP?
There are 4 important dates each month.
- Sack lunch bag filling. This is regularly the 4th Sunday of each month between the 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. masses. This is often completed by our religious education teams and classes with guidance from a coordinator.
- Sandwich making. The sandwiches are usually prepared the night before delivery. This is typically the 4th Tuesday of each month.
- Hot meal prep. The hot meal is prepared the 4th Tuesday of each month, typically at 6 p.m. in the RCP Hall kitchen.
- TFH delivery. Every 4th Wednesday the hot meal and sack lunches are delivered.
