Advent Parish Breakfast: December 14 *
Please join your parish family at our winter youth sponsored breakfast at 9 a.m. This is a special opportunity to share time and a delicious meal during this season of anticipation and hope. The menu includes cinnamon-baked French toast, sausage links, scrambled eggs, fruit and oatmeal, coffee, orange juice and milk. Adults are $7.00 and children ages 6-12 are $4.00, with a $20.00 maximum per family. Special musical entertainment will be provided by the youth. All proceeds will benefit our Youth and Families ministries.
Men’s Action Guild (MAG) *
The Men’s Action Guild meets the second Wednesday of each month in Browning Hall at 6:30 p.m.
If you or someone you know were at the recent Shrimp Boil in February, or were looking for that special item at last November’s Rummage/Furniture sale, then you have experienced some activities that MAG has helped to sponsor. But, we are much more than these activities. We are men of the parish who, each year, endeavor to put into practice the Church’s commitment of breaking bread together, helping others, enhancing our spiritual lives and developing a strong sense of fellowship. The monies that we collect, as a result of our activities, help St. Hilary’s pay for many non-budgeted items. For instance, we recently paid for the improved security lighting around the campus, as well as a majority of the cost of the new carpeting in Browning Hall. In addition, over the years we have funded organizations and ministries, such as annual lunches for ECHO (Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization), our KAIROS prison outreach ministry, financial support for seminarians, youth mission trips, Reach Rwanda, Dominican School support and Episcopal Relief and Development. In the near future, we hope to resurrect WASH (Work At St Hilary’s) days. This will provide a means for us to provide an economical way of maintaining some of the parish infrastructure. Additionally, our close association and collaboration with the ECW (Episcopal Church Women), helps them to be successful in conducting their Rummage Sales and Holiday Bazaar. As you can see, MAG is a living, active supplement to our already fine congregation. If becoming a part of this vibrant ministry appeals to you, contact Gerry Mungan at 239-418-1122 or 513-839-0976. Those of us who find this ministry so rewarding would love to have you join us.
