Outreach Ministries

We welcome all parishioners and community members to join on of our outreach ministries. We offer many opportunities to serve our community at St. Maria Goretti and the greater Madison area.

Outreach Updates

While our usual ministries have changed during these times (see below) we are using the Outreach Funds to help our neighbors in need. Thank you to all who continue to donate to the Outreach Fund during this pandemic.

CMC Meals that Matter - Lasagna Takeout Meal Program

Order a pan of lasagna for your household to support the CMC. Your purchase will provide much needed hope for our sisters and brothers in need in the form of free meals, low-cost immigration legal services, food from the food pantry, personal hygiene items, and more.

Place a meal order by Wednesday and pick up on Friday from Noon to 2 p.m. at CMC Fitchburg, 5256 Verona Rd, Fitchburg. Please call us at 608-310-1727 if you need to make alternate pick up arrangements. Pans are served cold with heating instructions included. Order online at

Update on Donations to the Outreach Fund

With all the changes that have come about because of Covid-19 personal involvement in the various Outreach Ministries at St. Maria Goretti has, for the most part, been curtailed. But thanks to the generosity of the our parishioners we have been able to help the following partner ministries with generous donations.

  • St. Vincent de Paul
  • The Catholic Multicultural Center
  • Luke House Meal program
  • Pregnancy Helpline
  • Housing assistance through Joining Forces for Families
  • Free medical care through Our Lady of Hope Clinic
  • Pro-Life Rally at the Alliant Energy Center

While there are now vaccines for Covid available, it will still be at least six months before things get back to what they were before the pandemic. That means there is still a much greater need to help our neighbors with food, shelter and medical assistance. If you are able, your donations to the Outreach Fund will continue to be used to help these community partners as they care for the needs of our community. If you would like you donation to go to a specific purpose or community partner please email Deacon Dick at
