Featured Volunteer Ministry - St. Edith Picnic
The 8th annual St. Edith family picnic will be held Sunday, August 18, 2019. This event has had the success of being very well attended. It is enjoyed by so many parishioners and their families and friends.
In order to continue this success, the picnic committee needs new volunteers to chair the many fun activities. Most of the details for the various activities are already in place so it’s a matter of your time and energy to carry out one fun activity that you would be dedicated to. It is a perfect time for younger people to join the group and start learning the ropes so that the picnic can continue for many years to come.
In particular, we are in need of a coordinator for Face Painting and for massage therapists to do chair massages. You can explore any one of the many opportunities by contacting Mary Lou Burr, our Picnic Chairperson via phone or text at 734-245-5597.

- Art and Environment looking for waterers!
Soon we will be putting together the outside landscaping around the church. We are looking for several people who would be willing to help with watering the containers around the church. The containers need to be watered about every other day and if we can get several people to do this, it would be a once-a-week 30-60 minute commitment. It's not hard work....all you need is a willingness to give one hour of your time each week....we will be happy to show you everything you need to know. If you are interested in helping out with this, please give me a call, text or email.Thank you in advance for helping to make our church a beautiful place to worship!Jane DeRoo
