 Saturday, December 10 – 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Church Cleaning Party – Help clean up the Church and make it sparkle for the Christmas season! We are asking for a ratio of at least one parent to two or three students. Parents will be “hands on” supervisors. Bring buckets, rags and mops. Cleaning supplies will be provided. This is a wonderful Advent opportunity: cleaning while spending some reflective time in the presence of God.

NEW: Wednesday, February 22 and Thursday, February 23 – 9 a.m. to 12 noon: 7th and 8th graders are needed to work at the Response to Love Center, Buffalo.  Parent volunteers to drive and also stay and help with work and supervision are also needed. Click here for the required permission slip.

Friday, March 17: St. Mary’s will host a Senior Prom for senior members of our parish, as well as parish neighbors, over the age of 70 … featuring dancing, food, fun and conversation! The event will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Parish Center. (This is a day off school.) Needed are decorating, welcoming and food preparation teams, as well as other volunteers to help make this a special day for all of our guests. If you are a musician, we can use your talents as well! And of course, there is always need for a clean-up crew. We are in the process of forming core teams of adults to help plan the event. Call the Faith Formation Office at (716) 683-8564 for more information.
