Coffee and Donuts
Coffee, tea, milk, hot chocolate, bagels and donuts are served after the 8:00am and 9:30am Sunday Masses in the Great Hall of the Parish Center September through May. Volunteers make coffee, set up tables and set out food and drinks. Clean-up is sometimes aided by those families still in the Parish Center at “closing.”

The Welcome Committee hosts three dinners a year to include all new registered parishioners. These dinners help new people meet fellow parishioners and also provide an overview of different parish activities to assist in their transition into the parish. Welcome Committee members, as well as the priests, attend the dinners to answer questions about the church and school.
