The Outreach Ministry provides a variety of parish programs that provides emergency financial assistance and support to those in our community who are homeless or struggling through tough times. Assistance is given toward emergency needs, such as food. We also maintain a small emergency food pantry. If you wish to volunteer to help with the many services that the Outreach Ministry provides, please contact the Outreach office at 581-9805, or use the contact form at the bottom of this page.
Enjoy a lovely afternoon of food and fellowship. Our meals are more “church potluck supper” than soup kitchen. Whether behind the scenes in the kitchen, or out front in the dining room, you will be sharing the love of Christ with other St. Clement’s parishioners and our soup kitchen friends. Teens 14 & older are welcome to volunteer with a parent. The Meals are served the first and second Sundays of the month at New England Presbyterian Church, 24 Circular Street, across from Batcheller mansion. Volunteer by clicking below. Note that clicking on each “Available job” will call up a detailed description of that job.
St. Clement’s also supports the Snacpack ministry. This community outreach helps the chronically underfed youth of the Saratoga area. For more information go to their website.

This parish program supports women during special times of motherhood. It is designed to affirm, support, encourage and celebrate their commitment to the dignity and worth of a child’s life. The Elizabeth Ministry provides “Baby Baskets” to mothers in in need and assist in the purchase of furniture or equipment needed for a newborn child.
