Throughout the year, there are several different events and Church functions that are celebrated with light refreshments. These include the sacraments of First Eucharist, Penance and Confirmation, special Masses and other events such as the Youth Group Seder Meal, Ministry retreat, and Parish fish fry. The Hospitality Ministry helps serve refreshments during these functions so that participants can focus on their celebration and prayers.
The Basket Social is typically held in the beginning of October each year to raise money to support the Religious Education programs in the Church. Volunteers begin collecting and making themed baskets throughout the summer and early fall for our Basket Social. Parishioners also create unique themed baskets to add to the variety. Food is available during the event to make a family fun time. Volunteers are needed in the months before the event to create the baskets, during the event for ticket sales and food preparation and serving, and the day after the event to facilitate distributing the baskets to the winners.
Parish Breakfasts are held the second Sunday of each month from October to April. We have several teams who take turns throughout the year. The breakfast teams consider themselves to be the happiest workers in the Parish as they join together to make the food, serve and clean up. Each breakfast has a sponsor whose name is prominently displayed during the breakfast that they sponsor. Support our parish and receive some publicity at the same time.
Parish Festival is traditionally held the first weekend in June. For two nights we come together in fellowship with bands, ethnic foods, kid friendly games and adult games. Many hands make light work.
