The Good Samaritan Water Project (GSWP) is a missionary outreach for our youth and Young Adult Ministries. Its three-fold purpose is to provide sustainable water and sanitation projects in developing countries, give the young people and adults of our parish family the opportunity to put their Catholic faith into action, and to engage the entire parish in being involved in supporting our GSWPs.
GSWP Guiding Principles:
- Having our GSWP team members live out their Catholic faith through each of the clean water projects they embark on.
- Maximize interaction with locals and support projects driven by the local community.
- Embark on Water Projects that are sustainable.
GSWP Leadership Committees:
- Prayer Committee: Seeks a dedicated group that will become our Prayer Giants for this Ministry. Engages the entire parish to pray for the success of this Ministry, included once a month in the Prayers of the Faithful. Open to all members of the Parish Family
- Communications Committee: Uses a variety of media forms, to keep everyone informed on the different aspects of our Ministry. Open to adults.
