Volunteer With Us

Would you like to volunteer and join fellow parishioners as we help and feed the hungry in our area? Here are some of the many ways to volunteer:

Highland Blessing Dinner

In 2012, eight Highland area churches combined their volunteers to support the Highland Blessing Dinner, 520 Olive Street.

Hope Connections

5 Catholic churches help to supply the shower areas at the Hope Connections where 35-50 homeless people take showers daily. At this time, they are no longer a day shelter. The shower area, washer/dryer and client mail services are still open. They continue to need hand sanitizer, along with body wash, body lotion, razors, shaving cream, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, toothbrushes and toothpaste.  Email Deacon John for donation options. 

Christian Service

The Shreveport-Bossier Catholic community has supported Christian Service since Sr. Margaret and Fr. Murray Clayton began serving people in need in 1970.  In 2017, this ministry moved to Hope Connections on Levy Street and is now in our parish boundaries.  Christian Service continues to serve two hot meals a day, breakfast from 8:00 am – 10:00 am and lunch from 12 pm to 2:00 pm in TO-GO boxes.  They are in need of stryofoam to-go boxes, bottled water and individually packaged plasticware.
