Under the supervision of Sister Kathy Somerville, Parish Outreach, under the umbrella of Catholic Charities, began at Fatima in 1981 mainly to deliver direct services to the people who lived in the Manorhaven area. One of the basic thrusts of Parish Social Ministry is to convene others to address the issues of suffering and injustice.  Parish Social Ministry aims to bring people together to work for the greater good.  At Outreach we minister and offer support to anyone of any religious denomination or affiliation in our desire to put the Gospel call to love our neighbor by engaging in “concrete deeds of justice and service” into action.  As a primary advocate for those in need, particularly the most vulnerable and those without a voice, Parish Outreach assesses and meets the specific needs of our community members.  A continued focus on positive outcomes, and the ability to adapt, as needs change, is an important Hallmark of Outreach.

OLF Outreach is pleased to announce that because of many generous donations, we were able to distribute school supplies to 125 children last year.  With the help of a wonderful non-profit school supply company, we can ensure that all of our children at Outreach have sufficient supplies to start the school year off on the right foot.  It costs approximately $15.00 to purchase the supplies for each child.  If you would like to sponsor school supplies for our children, please send a check to Our Lady of Fatima Outreach and put school supplies in the memo.   We will also happily accept items that are requested by the schools but that we are unable to distribute.  These items are paper towels, wipes, and tissues.



We happily accept donations of personal hygiene items, diapers, wipes and household goods for cleaning.  Unfortunately our Outreach office is quite small and therefore we are limited in the amount and type of donations that we can accept.  We are always happy to receive children's clothing and shoes, but if it is a large amount, we would appreciate a call before you come over to make sure that we can accommodate your donation at that time.  If you would like to donate furniture or baby items, we ask that you send pictures of the items to Sister Kathy at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our Lady of Fatima Outreach is proud of the hard work done in order to ensure that every one of their clients is able to have a very merry Christmas.  OLF, in conjunction with the Port Washington community and people even further afield, is able to provide every one of our clients with either gift cards or presents.  Our Christmas giving program is twofold;  Client families are either adopted by a sponsor or they are provided gift cards from the Giving Tree.

Our Lady of Fatima offers classroom instruction in English as a Second Language as part of the Outreach Ministry.  Classes are held on Thursday evenings in the Parish Center from 7 – 9:00pm.  There is a nominal registration fee of $20.00 which includes the ESL textbook.   For more information please contact Sister Kathy at 516-883-3903 (English) or Jose at 516-883-6910 (Spanish).
