Community Reach

Haiti Project—JUNE Focus

The focus agency for May is the Haiti Project.  Outreach contributions are welcome using your blue pledge envelopes, writing a check to St. Thomas of Canterbury and putting “Outreach” on the memo line, or through your electronic transfer account. The Haiti Project is a partnership between the Milwaukee Episcopal Diocese and St. Marc’s Episcopal Church, School, Clinic and Agricultural program in Jeanette, Haiti.  It is an attempt to put our abilities, wealth, spirituality and time to work for people who are unfortunately living in one of the most chaotic places on earth; and to try to make a long term difference in their lives.   Please keep the people of Jeanette in your prayers. 


Food & Item Donations

STOC continues to collect food and other donations that support St. Alphonsus, St. James, Guest House & the Hospitality Center.  If you would like to donate additional items please label your contribution with your preference of ministry and donations will be distributed.  If you are donating food items please do not use the outside drop box, food donations should be left inside the church.  For more information please contact the church office at  414-421-0130.  Thank you….Outreach

Volunteer Opportunity


             The Greendale Health Department is looking for volunteers to participate in a mock emergency response to a bioterrorism attack. The event will be on Tuesday, June 14th 10:30 AM-12 Noon in Franklin.  It will be a test of local public health agencies’ ability to conduct a mass clinic to distribute antibiotics to 100% of their residents within 48 hours of the incident.  You would be participating as a patient walking through stations at the mass clinic as we practice determining the right antibiotic for you.  No personal information needs to be shared; you can give fictitious data to our screeners.  


It will be the second largest activity of its kind in our nation’s history, and will involve hospitals, ambulance services, health departments and emergency medicine providers from Fond du Lac down to Kenosha.


Please call the Greendale Health Department 414-423-2110 or email Sue Callison RN at if you would need more information or would like to sign up for this exciting and worthwhile event.
