Volunteer Opportunity: Spring Creek Manor
10/18/2016: For over 40 years parishioners of SJA have been visiting the Dauphin City Home (Spring Creek) during which they serve coffee, cookies and, more importantly, love. This ministry visits the home every Friday after attending 9:00 Mass. Each volunteer is assigned one Friday a month. Many of our volunteers have either passed away or have become too elderly to continue. Please consider joining us in this very important ministry while fulfilling the work of mercy of "visiting the sick". The patients look forward to and anxiously await our visits (oftentimes we are the only visitors they receive). For more information, contact Delores Euker at 566-1092.

NEW Ministry Communication Pages!
When we began the endeavor of developing a new website, one of the primary objectives was to find a platform that would allow us the opportunity to give each individual ministry their own page on our website. We are thrilled at how well this notion is being received. If you lead a ministry that does not yet have a Ministry Page up, please contact Jackie Abel in the parish office.
