Every Monday, from 9:30 to noon, dozens of folks of all sizes and ages gather for a fun morning of Line Dancing. Its a great way to make new friends and get a nice aerobic workout. All are welcome, you do not have to be a member or Catholic to participate. No dancing experience required. Learn at your own pace while having fun.

Every Tuesday, several parishioners gather at 12:15 for an afternoon playing dominoes and a variety of card games. New participants are always welcome. For more information, contact the Parish Office or Mary Winner.
The Children's playgroup is a group of parents or caregivers and their children who gather together twice a month for fellowship. Although most of the children are of preschool age all are welcome. Anyone can join at anytime.
The group meets 2 times each month on Monday mornings. Once a month the group meets at church, and the other day the group shares an off-site adventure.
This ministry provides an ideal opportunity for children to interact through play and story time. Also, it is a great chance for the adults to make new friends and share thoughts and ideas with each other.
HAND BELL CHOIR
On Wednesdays at 2pm, a dedicated group of music lovers gather to practice their skills with hand bells. This group does not perform at Mass, but shares their gifts with senior centers, and on occasion they entertain the parish in the fellowship hall. Anyone is welcome to join the group and the ability to read music is not required. If you can count to 10, you can play hand bells! For more information, contact the Parish Office or Norma Draucker
