Thursday Social Gathering  after Morning Mass!

Please come and join a group of people on Thursday mornings for about an hour or so after the morning Mass in our social hall.  The Mass runs from 8:30 - 9:00 am (you are welcome to come to that as well!), and then right afterwards, a little after 9 am, a group of people will be gathering in the social hall for coffee, snacks, and good conversation!  Some people will be knitting or crocheting, so please bring your own things if you'd like to join in the social gathering in that way as well.  Thank you again, and please at least consider stopping by to say hi on Thursday morning in the Church social hall.

All women of the parish are invited to attend Sunday, February 11, 2024 2:00pm to 4:00pm. This is an afternoon of sharing and fun to celebrate before the beginning of Lent. Those attending are asked to bring: your tea cup or mug, some finger food to share, a happy and joyful spirit, a friend. The theme this year is SCHOOL DAYS Questions or for more information contact Mary Poffenbarger - 1-301-639-3297  email - missmary@lockfarm.net 

Run with a Priest! (...or walk or bike!)

Everyone is invited to meet right outside the Social Hall entrance around 9:45 am where we will say a prayer at 10:00 am and then go for a short run on the rail trail that exists right next to the Church property.  We will have the social hall open as our home base throughout the morning (the official event time will be from 10 am - 12 pm), so feel free to stop in for some water and maybe even some coffee as well!  This is once again just an idea to try to get people together and grow as a parish family.  Please invite friends to come as well, and I'll be excited to see you there!  Thank you, and God Bless you!

Potluck Sunday Lunch

Something that most of us share in common is enjoying good food along with good company for a relaxing meal!  Every 3rd Sunday, we will be having a Potluck Sunday Lunch immediately following the 11:00 am Mass (so starting around noon or 12:15 pm).  There is certainly no ongoing commitment to be involved in this, so each month every person and every family can decide if they would like to come and attend according to their schedule.  As long as families do their best to bring a dish or meal with them to be shared (the parish will supply water, juice, and coffee), we should end up with an enjoyable potluck lunch for everyone to partake in.  There will be a table already setup in the social hall with plugs available if needed, and if you would like to use the warming oven to keep something warm ahead of time, please contact me at frbdunkelberger@hbgdiocese.org so we can have that ready for the Sunday it will be necessary.  This could also develop into something more than just a lunch, but I wanted to encourage people to simply come together for a Sunday meal as a parish family and enjoy good food and good company to help us grow together as a community!

It's that time again, February 17 and 18, for the Ladies Auxiliary soup sale !!  Think about what you want to donate and purchase. We will collect donations on Saturday, February 17, between 10:00am and 2:00 pm in the kitchen in the hall. The sale will be after all the Masses on  February 17 and 18.
