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!
Prior Years Activities:
Our Recent Activities
July 2 - Our Council led a Patriotic Rosary at St. Elizabeth at 7:40 am, prior to the 8:30 am Mass. Inspired by Our Lady, the Patriotic Rosary is a powerful prayer for divine protection and mercy for our Nation and our government leaders at all levels. Each decade of the Patriotic Rosary starts with a historical quote from famous leader, recognizes our states and is followed by the singing of a hymn.

Thank you to the Steve Puccino and the Brothers who helped support this. We hope to do it again next year.
Once again this year, our Council helped with the maintenance of trail that runs from the front of St Elizabeth Church to the covered bridge, then back to the end of the church property. Brothers and family members signed up to walk and clean the trail during the months of April, June, August and October.
Thank you for helping out!
Clothing Drive to benefit St Vincent de Paul Society
June 4th / 5th - We collected gently used clothing and other household items after all Masses to benefit St Vincent de Paul Society. We do this each year, and as usual the members of the parish community were very generous with their donations to assist those in need.
