The mission of the Cathedral’s Outreach Ministry is to respect and acknowledge Christ’s presence in all persons;
to serve Christ by serving his people in our neighborhood, city and world;
and to encourage others in this vision as we reach toward the kingdom of God.

In the Topeka Community

Here are some of the ways our parish reaches out to those in the Topeka community:

Sandwich Ministry – Sack lunches distributed on Saturday from 8:30-11:30 a.m.

Harvesters BackSnack Program – providing backpacks of food to low-income children at area schools for the weekend, to combat weekend hunger.

Food Sunday – a monthly collection of non-perishable food items to be distributed to Let’s Help and Doorstep in Topeka.

Let’s Help lunches – cooking and serving lunch at Let’s Help several times throughout the year

Special collections for disaster relief, aid to military families and other projects when the need arises
