Quilt, Craft, Pray With Others

You are invited!

Quilt, Craft, Pray
May 29 at 6:30 in St. Joseph’s Hall

A new fellowship group is forming at St. Mary’s: “Quilt, Craft, Pray” for anyone who sews, knits, crochets, draws, paints or other creative projects.
As a low-key, friendly gathering, it will be a time of fellowship, projects, prayer and short discussions about our Catholic faith.
Everyone is welcome to bring a project to work on during the meeting or just stop by to say hello. There will be opportunities for the group to learn from each other. So, if you always wanted to learn to knit or paint, etc., this is your chance! We also plan to work on projects to help our parishioners such as items for the homebound, new baby, prayer shawls, etc.
If you have any questions contact Karen Scharenbroch at
717-507-9881. kscharenbroch@comcast.net or Patty Price at pprice1641@gmail.com.

Funeral Luncheon Volunteers Needed

Funeral Luncheon Ministry Update

A team of volunteers  provide  funeral luncheons to parishioners in Frederick Hall after the services. Families return to the parish center and are served a stress free lunch as these volunteers take care of everything!

We are in need of volunteers to help. You never have to give more than a couple hours of your time because of the various jobs. For example, after the food is served, the clean up committee will arrive.

As a volunteer you can choose to …

  • set up the day before
  • prepare and serve the food
  • cleanup
  • provide a dessert

Volunteers are called when a luncheon is scheduled. At that time, you can decide if you are available for that luncheon.

You never have to give more than a couple hours of your time.

If you would like to signup to help fill out this form here or call the church office

717-272-5674. We would love to have you.
