Social Ministries

Donut & Bagel Sunday

Donut and Bagel Sundays are a very popular ministry at Divine Redeemer. Donuts & bagels are served after Sunday Mass the first, third and fourth Sundays of the month, from September through May. This is a wonderful opportunity to visit with old friends or to make new ones. This is a great way to demonstrate hospitality and build community. A commitment to this ministry would involve setting up, serving the donuts and bagels and cleaning up one Sunday each month.

End of Summer Festival

Divine Redeemer's End of Summer Festival is a community building event for the parish & school that offers food, entertainment, crafts, raffles, a silent auction and games for the children. The festival is held the end of August each year. It provides our parish with an opportunity to celebrate with a wide variety of entertainment, while extending a variety of volunteer opportunities for every member of our community from students to seniors.

Parish Picnic

Every year during the summer, we come together for fun and fellowship at our outdoor Mass and Parish Picnic here at Divine Redeemr. This is a great family day filled with worship, volunteer recognition, a delicious potluck luncheon, entertainment, fun and games. The picnic is a great way to meet others in a casual atmosphere. Because this is such a large event, we call on a very large number of volunteers to help set up, serve food, help with games and clean up after the event.

Oktoberfest

Come and experience bratwurst, German pretzels, the oom-pah of German music and of course lots of beer! Many volunteers are needed. Join us for this fun celebration held in October.

Poverty Meals & Stations of the Cross

Each Friday evening during Lent, various groups from the parish lead the Stations of the Cross followed by a Poverty Meal, consisting of bread, soup and fruit. Come and enrich your spiritual experience during Lent.

Seder Meal

The Seder Meal is a beautiful, Jewish celebration for the feast of Passover. It is held at Divine Redeemer each year on the Wednesday of Holy Week.

St. Francis Quilting Circle

Throughout the year, these ladies meet and create a beautiful quilt which is raffled off at the End of Summer Festival. Their handiwork is exquisite and a prized possession to the lucky winner of the quilt.
