Sunday Hospitality (currently inactive due to the pandemic)

St. Mary’s offers this fellowship opportunity in the gym on the 2nd Sunday of each month, after the morning masses. Please check the parish bulletin for specific dates.  This is a chance to meet and greet fellow parishioners over a cup of coffee or juice and some donuts and fruit. 

There are two shifts available each month.  Volunteers for the first shift (7:15 a.m. until 10:15 a.m.) set up and serve.  Volunteers for the second shift (9:45 a.m. until 12:45 p.m.) serve and clean up.  New team members are always needed and welcomed.
