Elder Abuse Awareness




Our volunteer recruitment for the St. Edmund’s PADS Ministry is always underway. This ministry works under the umbrella of the housing Forw>rd + Prevail organization. The program runs every Tuesday from Mid –September through Mid-May at Oak Park Temple at 1235 North Harlem. We hope you will consider supporting this key parish ministry by signing up to be a team volunteer. As a volunteer you are making a commitment to work as part of a team in whatever capacity you choose.

 For over 20 years this program has run successively because of volunteers like you and the fact that no one person can do it alone. Please consider joining one of the many team opportunities we have. We can offer a time slot to fit anyone’s needs. Below is a list of the teams and the time commitment:

  • Set-up Team- one Tuesday a month from 4:45pm to 6:00pm

  • Dinner Team-Tuesday every seven weeks 6:00pm to 9:00pm (food or drink contribution required);
