A Caregivers Luncheon, held June 2, offered a delicious meal, 2 video presentations, and a gift bag for guests all the while providing a relaxing atmosphere for the 45 caregivers who attended.  Friendly Visitor volunteers and additional support from others made service impeccable and the event rewarding for all.

  A glorious day visiting our "sister" parish of St. Katharine Drexel Church in Dorchester, Ma.
 

The March meeting of the St. Katharine Drexel book group included our guest, Barbara Miles, former diocesan archivist, who joined a discussion focused on readings of the life of Katharine Drexel and how she became a saint. Barbara also shared the content of her dissertation, "Used Trumpets," which revealed the many innovative ways Katharine advanced her mission of educating Indian and black children.

  Among the many parish ministries who are sharing their 'talents' with those in need during this Christmas season are some of the volunteers of the Friendly Visitors who baked a variety of cookies, bagged, tagged, and then delivered over 40 "goodie bags" on Tuesday, Dec. 18, for those at Wolfeboro Bay who do not have family or friends in the area.  Thanks for spreading Christmas joy!
 

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia is pleased to announce that the new home of the sacred remains of Saint Katharine Drexel have solemnly been installed at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

 

The second annual "Blessing of the Animals" was held at noon on Saturday, Oct. 6.  Forty-seven folks and their pets received a blessing from Fr. Cole, assisted by Deacons Rick Hilton and Charlie Ferraro.  Refreshments for both pets and their owners, as well as an opportunity to share their love of God's creatures, were enjoyed by all.

 

The Friendly Visitors ministry invited folks to a "simple supper" on Saturday, Sept. 22 and 95 people came to enjoy a Yankee ham 'n bean meal together.  Everything from appetizers to dessert was provided free of charge with the goal of gathering around the table together and building community.  Those who attended and the volunteers who provided the meal were in agreement, as one guest observed: "I had a wonderful time--and the food was delicious."
