Operation Serve

Doing hard things for God, our families, and our community

Fr. Patrick and Catherine Smith

Operation Serve is the name of our ecumenical youth development organization. More than just a youth group, Operation Serve is a rigorous and relevant community-service program that teaches our youth the value of hard and meaningful work and the value of reaching out to some of the most disadvantaged citizens and families in Quincy.



Our teenagers come from various churches all throughout our city, and together we have served Quanada, Madonna House, Chaddock, The Salvation Army, Horizons Social Services, The Illinois Veterans Home, and many other organizations in our community.
