The purpose of the Military Care Ministry is to recognize and show support to active military personnel that are family members and friends of St. Edith Stein parishioners. We host four activities throughout the year.
1. Display of ValorTo recognize, honor and pray for our active military personnel that are famiy members of SES parishioners by displaying their photo and where they are stationed.
2. Military Care Package Drives
Memorial Day (May) & Veterans Day (November)
Volunteers are needed on the weekends that we hand out and collect the care packages from parishioners. Help is also needed filling out custom forms to send boxes overseas and also preparing boxes. As of November 2011, we have sent out more than 1800 care packages to men and women stationed in Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan.
3. Veteran's Day Mass & Reception
An opportunity each November to honor and recognize our SES Veterans. Volunteers are needed to set up, decorate and help organize this special event.
