The JPIC Ministry responds and adheres to the social responsibility of the parish to help the less fortunate through various outreach programs to make them viable Christian individuals. In doing so, they are able to eventually contribute to better themselves, their families and others. An equal sense of social justice must prevail where outreach programs build, discipline and nurture the marginalized.
Through the years, our program has provided a window of hope to hundreds of young men and women, who in turn have helped themselves and their families. They realize they are not alone and that there are people who care.
