Weekday One Day Mission
Did you know that the Adult Mission Ministry is busy even on weekdays? Do you have some time during the week that you can give to support St. Joseph’s Place, a retirement community supported by Catholic Charities? A group of missionaries periodically help the facility update the apartment units.

hammer time: ministry improves homes and lives
They are armed with brooms and power drills, hammers and screwdrivers, paint brushes and encouraging words. Volunteers with St. Ann’s Adult Mission Ministry step in for those who can’t help themselves and are changing lives through fairly basic household fixes.
“Serving others brings us closer to Christ,” said Kathryn Gale, an AMM volunteer. “It gives us an opportunity to touch the hearts and the lives of those we meet.”
The Adult Mission Ministry strives to be the hands and feet of Jesus by improving living conditions and bringing hope to people throughout North Georgia. The six-year-old ministry so far has five projects scheduled for 2019; the first is March 16 in Woodstock.
Although their work involves repairs, volunteers’ greatest skill is a willingness to participate.
A few core members who are familiar with construction are there to back them up and serve as on-the-job trainers.
“Each of our missions provides an opportunity for adults to respond to Jesus’s mandate to go and spread the word by what we do,” said ministry leader Jim Perry.
The group believes that working alongside other volunteers fosters friendships.
