St. Norbert Parish’s Helping Hands Ministry serves members of our parish on a temporary basis during times of need or crisis. Helping Hands is a network of volunteers, men and women, who are on-call to provide services when need arises.
Services provided can include:
- Furnishing meals to newly discharged patients living alone.
- Transportation for the elderly, disabled or needy to mass, doctors or other appointments when family members are unavailable to help.
- Service for shut-ins; grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions, reading, visiting, etc.
- Housesitting during funerals
- Baking and assisting at parish events
