Community Outreach Center

St. Mary Catholic Church of Wayne purchased and renovated this building in response to the growing needs of the surrounding communities.  After several long months, the outreach center was ready to serve the community. The St. Mary Community Outreach Center opened its doors to the public on Sept. 3rd, 2003.  The Outreach center is home of the John Bolde Memorial Food Depot & the Open Closet.

"Donor's don't give to institutions.
They invest in ideas and people in whom they believe."
-G.T. Smith

The St. Mary Community Outreach Center relies on volunteers, donations, and sponsors to keep it running and able to support those who are in need. Even by something as simple as spreading the word we hope to keep the Center running indefinitely to continue the vision of helping our brothers and sisters in need.


Volunteers are always welcome!
