Interfaith Outreach

Raising Awareness - Praying - Donating

Despite the coronavirus, there is still something we can safely do to help our brothers and sisters in need. We can participate in HNOJ’s annual fall outreach to Interfaith Outreach.

Opportunities to help include our once-a-year second collection (both in person and virtual) the weekend of Nov. 14-15, and a drive-by food collection.

The second collection takes place on the weekend of Nov. 14-15.

Give online, use your second collection envelope or mail a check to Holy Name of Jesus, 155 County Road 24, Wayzata, MN 55391 and write "Interfaith Outreach" in the memo.

Food and household items can be brought to HNOJ during the times below. Drive-up - drop off near door 1. See suggested list below.

Monday, Nov. 16, 8:30-10:30 a.m.
Wednesday, Nov. 18, noon - 2 p.m.
Saturday, Nov. 21, 8:30-10:30 a.m. and 4-5 p.m.
Sunday, Nov. 22, 9:30-noon

With COVID-19, it has never been more important for us to be “Be the hands of Christ” for the folks in our community who depend on Interfaith Outreach. Please contribute to this important need.
