Social Concerns Committee
These committees are involved with community groups and organizations and other area churches to collectively meet the needs of the poor, hurting, and vulnerable in our community. The committees help keep the parish aware of issues related to promoting the dignity of human life via educational and advocacy opportunities. For more information on any of the organizations below, simply click on the name of the appropriate agency.

St. Albert’s Social Concerns Committee invites you to join us again this year as we celebrate our Catholic faith’s retired religious.
Please take a Cross off of the Lenten Tree in the Gathering Space and return the listed item with the tag no later than Sunday, March 25th. Gifts may be returned wrapped or unwrapped, but please return the item with the designated Lenten Cross in the Gathering Space.
These items are simple inexpensive gestures that allow us to thank the retired religious in our community who have served us in our Catholic upbringing. Gifts will be distributed to the retired religious residing at Sacred Heart Home, Little Sisters of the Poor, Nazareth Nursing Home and the Ursuline Sisters of Mount St. Joseph in Owensboro.
The first weekend of each month we invite you to make a donation of canned or boxed food for local food pantries. Please place all food items in the wooden boxes in the Gathering Space of the Church. Please contact Mary Jo Burke at 502-339-8908 with any questions.
St. Albert’s is a very compassionate and generous parish which allows the Social Concerns Team many opportunities to serve our community, helping those in need. If there is a charitable need or social justice issue you are involved in and are passionate about, we urge you to join us. Social Concerns Committee Meetings are the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in The Sacred Heart Center. Please stop by to meet the current team of volunteers to introduce yourselves while finding out what we are all about.
Since January, the Justice Initiatives Committee has approved several projects for funding.
