St. Alphonsus Parish is actively recruiting a Director of Social Concerns Ministry. The Director of Social Concerns Ministry is responsible for the education and promotion of Catholic Social Teaching principles within the parish community. This involves designing, promoting and overseeing the community outreach programs such as the food and clothing pantry, Thanksgiving meal, North(east) Pole Community Christmas Store, VITA Tax Program, mobile food pantries (food trucks), and mission trips. Social Concerns Ministry also attempts to educate the parish about relevant social justice issues, the Creston neighborhood, and other nonprofit organizations in an attempt to broaden the world view of the parish and increase awareness of the work being done outside the parish campus itself.
