To those that continue to volunteer in Holy Grounds to feed and provide coffee for the workers across the street.
The coffeehouse needs you
A letter from Hannah Powell
My name is Hannah Powell and I am the Discipleship Formation and Holy Grounds coordinator at St. Patrick’s. You can find me in the coffee house making various drinks (and hopefully perfecting my latte art) or doing other work to support the ministries (like Alpha and small groups) here at the parish.
I am writing to you today to entreat and ask for your help.
We are starting a new initiative at St. Patrick’s & I would love for you, yes YOU, to be involved.
HolyGrounds and personally myself, have truly benefited off the help of our amazing volunteers at St. Patrick’s, especially for our Sunday socials throughout the calendar year. I am always so touched when people offer to help in some way, shape or form especially because I know how busy life can get. I know there are other responsibilities that are yours to hold. Please know your amazing & selfless expression of service is not lost on the team here at St. Patrick’s.
I am writing this letter to you all, my parish family, to present an opportunity. We would love to start having consistent volunteers run the coffee house on various days of the week starting in September. …
You were called by God for a purpose, and were given gifts and charisms by the Holy Spirit at the time of your Baptism and Confirmation. Discover your special gift through the Called & Gifted program now being offered through St. Patrick’s.
