MISSION CONCERNS

PIHDM

The Parish Integral Human Development Ministry is dedicated to works of mercy, charity and catering to the basic human needs of food, shelter, health care and education of the marginalized. Legal assistance and counselling is also provided to those in need. A part of the PIHDM’s efforts to aid the marginalized is to assist with the collection of necessities like food, clothing etc. Besides that, the ministry along with the Tzu Chi organization has been holding free medical clinics each month, to benefit the refugees. Pope Paul II once said that “The parish must be a HOME to everyone,” and therefore we have amazing communities like the Filipino El Shadai Community and Vietnamese, Myanmarese, Indonesian, Indian, Sri Lankan and Nigerian communities. All together as ONE.

 

If you would like to contribute and cater to the marginalized, please contact:
