Our VBS program is looking for a few folks who can sew simple costumes for our children to wear in our Bible lesson activity: simple tunics and sashes that can be pulled overhead and tied at the waist similar to what is pictured here.

Meals For Our Parish Priests
A core group of parishioners provides dinner for our priests at t. Joan of Arc throughout the year. We are hoping to add additional volunteers to this effort to allow for more flexibility in the group. The requirement would be for you to provide one (1) meal per month on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday. If you are interested in participating in this ministry and would like more information, please contact Martha Rupert at email@example.com or call 717-649-9665.
Volunteers are needed to help stuff the remaining envelopes for the parish festival mailing on Tuesday, May 2nd from 6:30 - 9pm in Meeting Room C. Please consider giving some of your time to assist with this project. All help is greatly appreciated!
New Parish Ministry Forming!
The time immediately following the death of a loved one is often filled with grief, sorrow, emptiness as well as confusion and stress.
