Local Missions

Lake Cares

St. Philip members help feed the hungry by bringing non-perishable food items to the Lake Cares Food Pantry, serving local families each week.  We also make monetary donations and members serve as volunteers there. St. Philip member volunteers helped contribute to over 2,500 volunteer hours served in 2012 by the local “Care Abounds in Communities” program (a program sponsored by Thrivent Financial, Inc.). These volunteer hours generated a contribution by Thrivent Care Abounds in Communities of $5,000 to Lake Cares. Lake Cares distributed 260,000 pounds of food to Lake County clients last year. .

Thanksgiving Dinner

Each Thanksgiving, St. Philip opens its doors to the community.  Everything is prepared by our volunteers.  We set a festive room with all the fixings for a traditional, sit-down Thanksgiving meal.   Historically, we serve over one hundred people every year.
