Msgr. Robert J. Gettinger, known to most as “Fr. Bob” has been ministering to the needs of the poor for over 50 years. Through Fr. Bob’s Outreach, he blesses many with prayer and monetary assistance. This includes programs that focus on assistance with utility bills, Christmas baskets and funeral assistance.

The giving and generosity is a real blessing to the program.

How We Can Help
Utility Assistance Program
Our objective is to help low income households get through difficult times. This program provides year round assistance to help people pay for bitterly cold winters or unbearable hot summers in addition to those who are at risk of utility shutoffs.
As part of our mission to serve others during the Christmas season every year we give away over 4,500 Christmas baskets and over 700 Shoe and Clothing certificates.
We all know that the crossing over of a loved one is a stressful. Fr. Bob’s Outreach tries to lighten the burden and stress by assisting with prayers, counseling and a stipend to assist funeral/burial arrangements.
