Hospitality after Mass
The parish offers hospitality after the 8am morning Mass each Wednesday. Hospitality offers everyone the opportunity to stay awhile after Mass and visit with their fellow parishioners while enjoying a donut and cup of coffee or juice.
Annual Great Yard and Collectible Sales
Twice a year – the 1
st weekend of April and the 1
st weekend of October – our Parish Thrift Store holds a community-wide Great Sale. Members of the parish and community bring their donations of good, clean used items to the parish hall beginning the Monday before the event. Volunteers, sort and price the items. Then on Friday morning at 8am the doors are opened and the shopping begins!!! Each event raises between $8,000 - $12,000. The profits are set aside in an account to be used for special projects around the parish – such as a new roof on the parish hall and new carpeting in the church.
Volunteers are always needed. If you would like to be a part of this fun and fast paced project, please call Gae Carpenter at the Thrift Store: 365-5853. Men are especially needed for lifting and moving larger items.
Lenten Friday Dinners
Every Friday evening during Lent, a simple meal of meatless soup, salad and bread is served in the parish hall. Participants are asked to make a donation to the Diocesan Food Bowl in support of the church's ministry to the needy. Dinner is served at 6:15pm followed by Stations of the Cross at 7pm. Volunteers from families and ministry groups to help prepare and serve the meal are needed each year. For more information or to volunteer, please call the parish office

Family Night of Enchantment
Every year in late October, our parish sponsors an evening of fun, games, food, game booths,
auction items and raffle prize drawings for all ages. There’s a train ride, pumpkin patch, jump house and slide to compliment the many game booths for children. There are always several delicious meal choices that are prepared by various ministry groups in the parish. Watch the parish calendar and bulletin for this year’s date.
