St. Anthony’s Human Concerns Commission
St. Anthony’s Human Concerns Commission (HCC) follows the outline of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in responding to the needs of the people of our parish as well as the wider community of Kenosha. The Human Concerns Commission sponsors the annual Alzheimer’s Walk, Blood Drive and Right to Life events in cooperation with other parishes and NGO’s. Additionally, HHC has responded to the needs of the less fortunate in Kenosha with donations of food in feeding the homeless.
Within our own parish, we reach out to our parishioners in nursing homes and look for ways to meet the needs of our fellow worshipers in Christ.
Christmas Giving Tree
The Human Concerns Commission extends a huge heartfelt “Thank You” to all the donors of this year’s Christmas Giving Trees.
More than 155 new towel sets and more than 85 new children’s toys were donated. Donors, your generosity is a credit to you, our St. Anthony of Padua parish, and the Catholic Church.
May God bless you abundantly for your generosity and your demonstrated love of the less fortunate.
College Care Packages
Every year, care packages are created and sent to parishioners in college or the military to let these young people know St. Anthony is keeping them in prayer. These boxes are filled with greetings from Fr. Todd, snacks, school supplies, rosaries and more.
God’s Kitchen Thanksgiving Meal
On November 19, 2022, Arnetta Griffin of God’s Kitchen held her Thanksgiving Meal for the less fortunate people of Kenosha at St. Anthony’s Hall. St. Anthony’s Human Concerns as well as high school students from St Joseph’s Catholic Academy and Arnetta and her volunteers served delicious food and shared fellowship. It was a heartwarming time. One woman stated that “If it was not for Arnetta’s generosity, she would have gone hungry many times this winter”. A Holiday Meal will be provided by God’s Kitchen at St. Anthony’s Hall on January 7, 2023.
