Organizations and Ministries

of St. Casimir Church

 

The success of a parish family is based on the strengths that lie within the groups of parishioners who give freely of their time and talents to make up the organizations and ministries of a church.The Rosary Society, Womenís Guild, Menís Club and Knights of Columbus have been the foundation of our church organizations for many years.Members of these four groups have consistently donated countless hours in making our parish what it is today.The Rosary Society originally called the Sisters of the Rosary was founded in 1908.One hundred years later this group is still active within the church and is especially known for their ďfamousĒ Grinder Sale, which falls on the last Saturday of January.The Catholic Womenís Guild was organized November 9, 1948.This group like the Rosary Society has played a very active role in the church.If you like Polish food, you want to be sure to attend their Food Fair, which is held every year in November.The Menís Club, a relatively new group, continually lends support spiritually, financially and socially to our parish.Their February Pasta Supper, held just in time for Valentineís Day is always a big hit for the entire family while their evening of Wine Tasting for the over 21 crowd are events that bring together parishioners and non-parishioners.The Knights of Columbus Leo XII Council 1090 with their Council Chambers located at The Lyceum draws its membership from St. Casimir Church, Immaculate Conception Church and St. Michael Church supporting both the church and community.

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

The Prayer Shawl Ministry of St. Casimir and the Immaculate Conception Churches brings together women of both parishes who share a common bond through knitting and crocheting.Through the continued generosity of groups and individuals, this ministry celebrated its 5th anniversary in 2009.New members are invited to join us at the Lyceum for either our monthly morning session or monthly evening session.If you would like to join and do not know how to knit or crochet, we will gladly help you get started.In addition, we are looking for the names of individuals who might appreciate the gift of one of our shawls or lap blankets.For more information on this ministry, please contact Dorine Tennant at (860) 584-5303.††
