Keeping Our Parish Beautiful

Rocco's Garden Club

This is a very unique ministry that helps us keep the grounds at Our Lady of the Snows Church clean, attractive and welcoming! Members meet weekly during the spring, summer and fall to weed, trim and water the planters and gardens surrounding Our Lady of the Snows Church. The work is physically demanding but wonderfully satisfying.  

CSB Beautification Committee

These caring souls help maintain the landscaping and grounds surrounding the picturesque St. Benedict's Church. All are welcome and no experience needed.

House of God Cleaners

On a regular basis, volunteers sweep, polish and clean the interiors of both Our Lady of the Snows and the Church of Saint Benedict. Help is always appreciated in this great service which makes our worship spaces a beautiful place to gather and worship God.
