Blood Drive

Each year we host a blood drive for area blood supply. It is a very tangible means by which we can share life.

Coffee and Donuts

Parishioners, generally Religious Education parents, volunteer to serve coffee and donuts beginning at 9:00 prior to religious education classes on Sunday mornings. This allows time for socializing, building community, as well as welcoming guests, visitors and new parishioners.

The Retirees are a social group that meets monthly to engage in activities: short one-day trips, visiting local points of interest, playing cards and working to promote our community of faith. Anyone who is retired, no matter their age, is welcome! This group also occasionally meets with the retiree group from St. Patrick, The Shamrockers.
