Holy Redeemer Catholic Church reminds us that every Christian is called to serve and should actively accept the responsibility of their baptism.
It is the purpose of the Christian Service Commission to promote and coordinate programs that will guarantee all God’s children in the worldwide community, in the local community, and especially within the parish boundaries, justice and charity in full measure. It has the responsibility of enabling members of the parish to respond to the social justice problems of today. It also concerns itself with the physical, mental, and emotional needs of the people of the parish, giving special care to the poor, the lonely, the aged, the oppressed, and minority groups.
Holy Redeemer’s Christian Service Ministries and Organizations
The Holy Redeemer Catholic Women’s League (CWL) was founded in October 1918. For over ninety years, the CWL has served the parish and its members in many ways. While providing a social network for women of the parish, our roots are in service and hospitality.
For over 25 years, HR has been financially supporting its Twin Parish in St. Jean du Sud, Haiti. In 2003, the committee expanded its efforts to additional assistance to meet the needs of the parish through several programs, including Sponsor a Student, the Harry Hosey Teacher program,medical missions and sea container shipments.
The GAMAM Program is a monthly collection of non-perishable food items for area food pantries (currently St. Elizabeth, Mother of John the Baptist). Each third Sunday the menu and the yellow GAMAM bags are provided and each fourth Sunday the filled bags are collected and delivered to the pantry. The monthly menus are based on the needs of the food pantries.

This charitable arm of the parish provides “near emergency” assistance to persons within the parish boundaries or throughout the community in the homes of those in need. At Holy Redeemer, funds are raised primarily through the collection basket. You will notice an envelope with your monthly packet of envelopes. Members of the SVDP, in their visits with clients, investigate problems and offer advice, comfort, expertise and possible solutions. There are multiple ways to volunteer and participate.
If you are interested in helping SVDP, our meetings are usually held on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of the month at 10:00am in the Rectory Meeting Room. All are welcome! To request assistance, contact us at 314-289-6101 ext. 2250
