Hand in Hand Ministries

St. Albert the Great supports Hand in Hand Ministries in a variety of ways. Throughout the year, St. Albert’s sponsors several collections. The weekend of Epiphany, St. Albert’s collects household cleaning supplies and toiletries. These items are donated to the families of the food pantry in Appalachia and the home repair programs of both Appalachia and Louisville. Providing financial support to Hand in Hand Ministries is also part of the Social Concerns Ministry at St. Albert the Great.


Immersion trips to Appalachia, Belize, Louisville and Nicaragua are offered throughout the year. Hand in Hand Ministries states “The toughest trip you will ever take will be one of the greatest weeks of your life!”

Parish Contact person: For immersion trips to Belize and Nicaragua contact Cynthia Rigby gynerigby@hotmail.com
