A Ministry of St. Patrick
This annual project will provide parishioners of all ages an opportunity to work together towards an important goal, providing parishioners in need with fresh vegetables. The objective of this project is to create an inter-generational bond within the parish, as groups, families, and students work together for the greater good of our community.
The Community Garden is located on the East side of the CountryFest shed; it’s a 25 foot x 25 foot plot.
