We have two fund-raisers to support the activities of the society. One is
a Social and Entertainment Show held in April and the other is a Pound Party
held in the fall. The proceeds from these functions go toward items needed
for the altar and donations for Concerns-U, Catholic Charities, Youth Faith
Formation Activities, Cookies for Shut-Ins, and others upon request.
|| Our mission, as a society dedicated
to Mary, our Mother, is to encourage devotion to Mary and her Holy Rosary,
to care for our worship space and to support one another in our community
through service, spiritual works and fellowship.
The St. John/St. Joseph Rosary Altar Society’s purpose has always
been devotion to our Lord’s Mother, Mary, with the recitation
of the Rosary on Saturday mornings during the months of May and October.
The Society members are responsible for the cleaning of the altar and
sacristy on a weekly basis. We have four meetings a year held in the
Mc Manus Center on Elm Street in Rensselaer, New York.
We have a Communion Breakfast in October and
two dinners during the year, which combine the spiritual and social aspects
of our Society.
If you are interested in our society or have
questions, please contact Carina Mahar, President at 436-1677.
