The Saint Joan of Arc Care Fund provides life-giving support to parishioners and neighbors in need of emergency financial assistance. A committee of Saint Joan of Arc parishioners meets with people in need who have contacted us by telephone and by filling out a form addressing their need. A set amount of funds are available at the beginning of each month and distributed until exhausted.
