The men of St. Mary's meet for breakfast in The Marshall Dining Room on the first Saturday of each month from September thru May for fellowship and to plan activities that give back to the community-at-large. The group has been volunteering in Chicago's Night Ministry Program where meals are prepared at St. Mary's and served to residents in the South Shore, Pilsen, and Lawndale neighborhoods in Chicago. The group enjoys attending Chicago Cubs and Northwestern football games, as well as bowling outings.
Each Sunday, coffee hour hosts provide invaluable hospitality to the parish community. Setting up and serving coffee, juice, and treats, these volunteers create the first layer of connecting to the St. Mary’s community beyond Sunday worship. Individuals, families, and friends can sign up to host coffee hour together.
