Social Action Coordinating Commission

We lead IHM parishioners to be Christ-like servant leaders in Catholic social justice through prayer, advocacy, education and support of those in need. SACC meets the 1st Monday of the month at 7:15 pm.

All parishioners are invited to discern serving as a parish leader. The Parish Pastoral Council will help you prayerfully discern where to best use your God-given talents, and will provide training for effective servant leadership.

For more information, please contact Jim Moyer
