The Parish Life committee is responsible for planning social events at the parish. The goal is to offer opportunities that build fellowship and friendships throughout the parish and into the community. We welcome new ideas and members to this active committee!
We co- host the annual Baby Shower for the Seed of Hope Pregnancy Center with the Christian Women’s group. This year the date is April 29th and it is so amazing to see the many diapers, outfits, blankets, stuffed animals, and other baby items that are brought to the shower. We are always amazed at the stories we hear from the women who run the center and what a blessing they have been to young mothers. Join us for this special evening – information is in the bulletin.
The committee has also hosted the Volunteer Appreciation Evening each spring – and that venue is new this year! On June 1st, we will have “A Celebration of Parish Life”, an adult social gathering with great food, craft beer & wine tasting, music, and recognition of Fr. Ken’s 45th anniversary of ordination, Fr. Behling’s transfer to a new parish, and all parishioners who make St. Teresa of Calcutta the wonderful parish that it is. See the bulletin for more information and to RSVP.
The biggest event of the year is the annual Parish Festival, usually held in June. The date is June 29th, and we have a new format – our 1st Car Show at the North Lake School parking lot along with Festival activities & games, silent auction, raffle, boutique, food trucks, and a DJ with many different types of music, at the adjoining North Lake Fireman’s Park. Please mark your calendar and join us for a great day! This event is open to the public – bring your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors!
In Fall of 2019 we hope to have a Harvest Festival at the Monches Ballpark – how about a pig roast, pumpkin carving/decorating, a bonfire, etc. If you like planning events like this, the Parish Life committee is the place for you!!!
