mercyWorks of Mercy Opportunities

Periodically, about every two or three weeks, we'll let you know of opportunities in our parishes and the wider community for Works of Mercy.
Please think of taking advantage of these, as well as finding opportunities in your daily life.
  • Jillian Altosino, the Life Enrichment Director at Citadel Healthcare is eager to have students help with baking, decorating cookies, making goodie bags to give to shelters, making crafts, coloring, painting. playing games such as Bingo, Trivia, Sing-a-longs/Christmas Carols.

    "We are also looking for any hidden talents such as singing, playing a musical instrument, etc. We are open to any suggestions you might have as well."

    If you would like to volunteer with the elderly, contact her at or 847-795-9700.
  • An elderly neighbor who lives close to the St. Emily parish grounds, on Marcella, needs help shoveling their driveway.  If you are interested in volunteering, contact David Mika.
  • The Liturgy Committee needs your help to set up for Advent and Christmas.  The sign up for these dates is here.  Advent is next week, so they will need you on Tuesday, November 26.  Check it out.
  • Helpers are needed to volunteer at Santa's Breakfast on December 7.  There are two sittings - at 8:00 AM and 10:30 AM.  Please contact Rosie Pecoraro at 847-208-5067 if you would like to donate a couple hours to help with the breakfast. Volunteers are needed at both sittings.
