Through life’s suffering, compassion is born and it is through this compassion that we are able to reach out to others. We singles have an understanding of the struggles each of us face. These struggles are often over-looked or misunderstood by others and many times can be overwhelming to the individual facing them. With CAST and its peer-to-peer ministry, we are able to reach out to other individuals within our community who are facing the challenges of life, that we too have experienced. CAST ministries has been able to reach those who have lost hope and faith, and has been able to form a bridge for many back to the Catholic Church. These individuals have been able to regain their faith and experience God’s healing through His love, mercy and grace. CAST has been able to assist individuals in finding resources that are available for their needs through other Catholic organizations within the community, and our members have even pulled together to assist each other in times of need.
In addition to supporting other singles in our community, CAST offers volunteer support to Salt & Light Catholic Radio. CAST members helped with the announcement of the station to the general Catholic public by setting-up and serving at the wine and cheese fundraiser. This was Salt & Lights first public event, followed by their pledge drive in which CAST members volunteered for the phone banks. CAST continues to offer support to Salt & Light Catholic Radio through volunteer efforts when ever possible.
