The Young Adult service night is every third Thursday from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

We do not have to prepare the dinner, just prep the desserts, bread and beverages, serve the dinner and clean up. The Supper Program serves dinner at 6:30 pm Monday-Friday to anyone who enters the door. We usually serve between 50- 75 people. 

Wear a baseball style cap or at if possible, or hairnets are provided. Aprons and gloves are also provided. 

The Supper Program dining room is in the basement of the Church. Use the door to the right of the main Church side door. There is a doorbell in the upper left hand corner if it is locked. 

We always need a team of 6 people so if you can make it please click here.

Bethany House is a shelter offering temporary housing to women and children in transition, operating in the tradition of the Catholic Worker. Each Wednesday Bethany House has both a prayer service/Mass followed by a dinner with the guests. We are looking for groups willing to purchase food for dinner (for about 10-20 people), prepare the meal, pray with the guests and stay to enjoy the meal. Depending on how long it takes for meal prep, the time commitment is from 4:30 or 5pm until everyone has eaten – usually about 7pm. Prayer is at 5:30pm and dinner is served at 6pm.

If you are interested in helping in any way or want more information, please contact the Bethany House chaplain, Sr. Karen Dietz, SSJ at [email protected] or 585-813-5072. You can also click here.
