Service & Outreach

Offering Opportunities to Serve the Community Through Organized Volunteer Activities

STAYCare (Celebrating And Respecting Every Person) is our ministry that serves individuals with disabilities in the community. Events and social activities like dances are planned a few times a year to promote inclusion and acceptance of those with disabilities in the Archdiocese of Washington.  




STAY members deliver meals to senior citizens in D.C. every fourth Saturday of the month (and the fifth Saturday if there is one). We meet at St. Thomas Apostle Church at 9:45 a.m. Help serve the people in your community by getting involved and joining STAY's partnership with IONA Senior services of Northwest Washington. For more information or to sign up, contact STAY's IONA Volunteer Coordinator, Peter Brusoe at


o Others Might Eat is a Washington-based organization where STAY members help feed the hungry by volunteering the third Saturday of every month through October 2017. We meet in front of St. Thomas Apostle Church at 10:30 a.m. and carpool to SOME. We are always  looking for drivers! For more information click the picture above. To sign up, contact STAY's SOME Coordinator & STAY Executive Board member, Jae Ahn at

Please Note: Neither open shoes nor shorts are allowed while serving lunch. Also, you will be provided a hair net, or you may bring a cap of your own.

Our last volunteer day in 2017 was October 21. STAY tuned for details on when we will volunteer with SOME in 2018.
