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. ..

Making Sense of Anxiety in Children and Youth

The escalating level of anxiety in our children begs for an explanation as well as a solution. Dr. Gordon Neufeld sheds light on this age-old problem, paving the way for natural interventions that can actually get to the root causes as opposed to just managing symptoms. Although the focus is on children, this enlightening material will benefit anyone suffering from anxiety.

Dr. Neufeld’s revolutionary yet science-specific approach turns parenting right-side-up, restoring natural intuition to parenting and putting parents back in the driver’s seat. This video course takes the best that science has to offer and renders it readily accessible to parents of children of all ages.

Every Thursday, starting September 21 until October 19, from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. via Zoom. Cost is $25. Learn more and register at
