Parish Social Ministry

Parish Social Ministry Logo

Parish Social Ministry is a coordinated effort to merge Scripture and the Catholic theology of the Option for the Poor and Vulnerable into meaningful and practical activities in West Tennessee.  The goal is to help our Church and the community at large translate these principles into concrete action.

These efforts are guided by a sub-commitee of the Catholic Charities Board of Directors which meets bi-monthly to develop strategy and annual goals.
