Fellowship following Mass
With the easing of Covid-19 pandemic social restrictions, each of the parish's church locations has resumed regular get-togethers for the congregation after the weekend Masses.
St. Leonhard's held its first Giving and Sharing Saturday after the Vigil Mass in May 2022, featuring snacks, soft drinks and wine. The event will be held on the last Saturday of the month, with a special collection at Mass to support an aid program for the poor in Albania backed by three Capuchin brothers at Frankfurt's Liebfrauenkirche. Similarly, a Giving and Sharing Sunday takes place at St. Mary's on the first Sunday of the month. Proceeds from a second collection there are given to the area branch of the Mary's Meals charity.
At Holy Cross, coffee and soft drinks have been offered weekly following the 9:30 a.m. Sunday Mass since June. To reduce costs and eliminate waste and the need for washing up, parishioners are asked to bring their own coffee cups to the social and take them back home when leaving.
More volunteers are needed for each event to prepare the serving tables and the drinks, clean up and put things away and, during the week, obtain supplies when needed. If you'd like to help, please contact the Parish Office at international(a)parish-frankfurt.de or phoning (069) 219 36 500.
