Our Council has a long history of hosting a large number of parish and community service projects throughout the year. We support local organizations such as The Lord's Pantry, Birthright, and St. John's Hospice. We sponsor Red Cross Blood Drives, and assist with local events such as the Ludwigs Corner Horse Show. In our Parish, we sponsor family activities such as Basketball Free Throw, Golf Outing, and many Right To Life activities. We provide assistance with the general needs of our parish and its school. We also hold a number of fraternal events for our members. There are always opportunities to get involved!

Adopt-a-Township-Road Program 2021

The trail runs south from the front entrance of the church, to the covered bridge, and north from the front entrance to the trail marker at the end of the church property. Volunteers walk and clean the trail once during the months of June, August and October. Everything needed is provided by the township.
Welcome Home Carts for Veterans
May 27 - Just in time for the Memorial Day weekend we delivered 20 Welcome Home Carts to the VA facility in Coatesville. These carts help veterans transition from VA care to a new residence by providing basic in home needs like paper products, towels, dish detergent and other products. Touchstone Home Products in Exton graciously allowed us to use their warehouse to store and assemble the warehouse carts. We will be doing this project again in the Fall, so watch for details!

March 26th - Our tradition continues! While we couldn't dine together this year due to COVID-19, we offered our home-made Lenten dinners using a drive-thru approach to safely deliver meals to Parishioners. We served over 200 meals! We had a great turn-out of Brothers to help out, and help from the Youth Group as well. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this event a success!
