Trunk or Treat
Since we are a rural community, there aren't good places to go house-to-house for treats on Halloween. We have tried using our parking lot during the afternoon to give the kids a chance to dress up, see their friends and fill up their bags.
In a joint project with the UCC, we hired a shredding truck and offered the community the chance to get rid of lots of old paper. It was so successful, we plan to do it again!
Bike & Build
In an annual joint project with the UCC, we feed and shelter over 30 college students as they bike from Maine to NYC to raise money for affordable housing and assist ongoing building projects, such as Housing for Humanity, as they bike along their route.
Many of our men parishioners meet on the first Tuesday of each month for a great breakfast and lively conversation.
Many of our lady parishioners meet monthly for a friendly gathering and a casual lunch.
