Women of Risen Christ

Women of Risen Christ Meeting 

We don’t have a meeting on Dec. 14, but we have a service project, so we need your help!  In order to provide cookies to all of the parishioners in our 13 nursing homes, we need over 100 dozen cookies brought to the parish hall on Sat. Dec. 14 by 9 a.m.  Then, we need help packaging the cookies for the 220 parishioners, and help delivering the cookies to the nursing homes.  So we’ll see you then!

Advent by Candlelight

Monday, Dec. 2,  6:30 p.m.

This year’s theme:  the Humility of Mary

Special presentation by our pastor, Fr. Scott Bailey

We are currently taking sign ups for table hostesses.  Interested?

As a hostess, you would provide a centerpiece following the Advent (purple / candles) or dinner theme (Humility of Mary).  We provide the tablecloths.  You would bring food and drink (non-alcoholic) for 6 people.  Since we don’t have the ability to plug in crockpots or hot plates, anything you serve needs to come hot or cold.   Some women bring ‘heavy’ appetizers rather than a full meal, and don’t forget a dessert.


Dishware, again, is up to you. Some women bring crystal and china, and others use nice disposibles.  And, since we eat by candlelight – bring candles as well.


Each table sits 6 women.  Each table hostess can bring 5 other women (or young ladies ages 13 and older).  If you don’t have 5 guests, we hope that you would let us place other parishioners at your table so that as many women as possible can participate.
