  • Today the James J O’Brian Council of the Knights of Columbus is offering their monthly brunch. Please come to St. Mary’s Hall following Divine Liturgy and enjoy.

There will be a 50-50 raffle for those who wish to have a chance for some cash.

 Food Pantry

Families in need continue to come to our parish for food and hygiene items. It has been over 2 weeks since anyone has made contributions to our pantry. And that sole contributor has been the only one donating for the last few months. We’re running out of most everything. Our pantry needs canned vegetables, fruits, and beans, pasta & sauce, soup, oatmeal, rice, apple sauce, hot chocolate, fruit juice, toothpaste & tooth brushes. We have Marsh scrip cards to buy these items if you shop there. Or check your home pantry for extra food that you can donate. Thanks.

Fund Raising

On Saturday, October 27, 2012 we had our last “summer” farmers market. The next two weekends we will sell our baked goods at high school craft fairs. See the Baked Goods page for details. Want to help sell for a portion of the day? Contact the rectory.

At the church there are freshly-baked rolls, kolachy, pumpkin log and biscotti available. We have books, icons, bracelets, thank you cards and scrip (merchandise) cards too.
