FAMILY ROSARY

Join us for Family Rosary Group. The group meets monthly, typically the first Friday of the month, to pray the rosary and offer prayer intentions in a home setting. All parishioners, families, married (with or without children) or singles are encouraged to attend. During Lent, we will also attend the weekly Stations of the Cross meditation at St. Aloysius Church as we are able.

Please call or email to express your interest to attend and get directions to our next gathering. For more information email Tom Konecny at konecny1@yahoo.com


SEWING GROUP

Started in 2019, this group meets to do charitable sewing.  Projects include creating wheelchair bags, walker caddies, and lap blankets for residents of local nursing homes, and sewing baby quilts and receiving blankets for pregnancy centers.

The group meets once a month on the third Thursday at 6 p.m. in Clare Hall. One month the group cuts out fabric; the next it constructs the items on sewing machines the members bring. Not all members are expert seamstresses. Some are new to sewing, and the group always needs members willing to iron or tie quilt fronts and backs together. Members teach each other skills, and fellowship develops along the way.

If you’d like to support the group but your talents don’t lie in stitching, please consider donating. The sewing ministry can always use light-  and medium-weight cotton fabric or cash donations. For more information, contact Ann Avina at pavina@woh.rr.com.


W(H)INE & CRACKERS

Potluck social for young families, couples, and singles age 50 or younger.  Meets in the Narthex & Gym on the second Sunday of each month for food and family-friendly fun! For more information, contact Michael Ginnetti  419-352-4195.
