SAINT ANNE CATHOLIC COMMUNITY
Saint Anne Catholic Community Church’s Project Hope ministry works to change the lives of those in crisis and need by providing food, rent, transportation, and utility assistance to those living within the Barrington area. Last year, the ministry provided assistance to nearly 25,000 people. While that number represents families and individuals served multiple times month-over-month, it also characterizes Saint Anne Catholic Community’s ongoing commitment to those in need in the Barrington community. Persons can choose to sponsor a family for the entire year To inquire, call the ministry office at 847-381- 5721). Throughout the year, food donations can also be dropped off at the pantry office (320 Franklin Street). For more information, visit stannebarrington.org.
