In the town of Marlborough, the St. John Fisher Parish is bustling with activity as the Christian Outreach Committee is preparing for a year filled with service and outreach opportunities. The committee members are dedicated to following the teachings of Jesus Christ and are eager to involve all our parishioners in their mission to serve the community.

For 2024, the committee is meticulously planning a series of recurrent monthly outreach events to address food and financial insecurity in our community. These events included a monthly food drive supporting the Marlborough Food Bank, sandwich collection and making for patrons of St. Vincent dePaul in Middletown, and the Community Giving Garden providing fresh produce to the Marlborough Food Bank throughout the spring and fall months.

In addition to the recurrent monthly events, the committee has scheduled specific outreach initiatives for each month of the year. From New Year intentions and prayers to a drive-thru café serving patrons of the Marlborough Food Bank, the committee has thoughtfully organized a diverse range of opportunities for parishioners to get involved and make a difference in the lives of others.

The calendar is filled with events such as a Baby Shower to support young moms and babies, a Back-to-School Supplies Drive for Marlborough Elementary School and RHAM families, and a Thanksgiving Food Drive and Thanksgiving Pie Making event. The committee also plans a Christmas Giving Program to spread joy and support to those in need during the holiday season.

As the year unfolds, the members of the St. John Fisher Parish Christian Outreach Committee are working tirelessly to engage our parishioners and the wider community in these meaningful service opportunities. Their dedication and compassion are a shining example of the spirit of giving and selflessness, and their efforts bring hope and support to those in need.

The town of Marlborough can't help but be touched by the kindness and generosity of our parishioners, and the impact of their service and outreach initiatives. The Christian Outreach Committee has truly embodied the teachings of Jesus Christ, and a commitment to serving others to make a profound difference in the lives of many.

We are always looking for new members to join the Christian Outreach Committee as they research and plan various events to involve parishioners as they act on what Jesus asks of us - "Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you." John 13:14-15

St. John Fisher Parish Vision:

We are a beacon of God’s gracious and merciful love as we glorify His name through service to others; devotion to His teachings and His Son Jesus; and by maintaining a welcoming, accepting and embracing Catholic community of faith that judges none, embraces and protects the vulnerable, builds community of all ages and life stages and acts for the greater Glory of God.

St. John Fisher Parish Mission:

We provide an open, welcoming and active Catholic faith community that is inspired by the gifts of the Holy Spirit as we demonstrate our faith by (1) actively participating in Mass and the Sacraments, (2) by serving and ministering to others, (3) by exploring and sharing the Word and teachings of Jesus and (4) by openly embracing the various needs of our entire parish family and broader community in Christ.
