SUCCESS! We met our goal for Souper Bowl of Caring in 2021 collecting over $700 and 1,100 food items! We had an awesome group of high school students for the scavenger hunt.

Thank you so much to all of those who donated food and money. I know Sister Elaine Byrne, who started this several years ago, is probably looking down smiling. We gladly carry on this effort in her name!


This camp is for youth of the parish entering 7th grade through just completed 12th grade who come together for service to the community. Some youth serve as leaders and adults leaders also needed. Contact Shanda Purcell for more information or to volunteer!

Camp Connect dates for 2021 are June 9-12.
