Service Activities

ALTAR LINENS COMMITTEE

Contact: Linda Loeffler (215) 453-9019 or email
The Altar Linens Committee takes responsibility for properly cleaning and ironing the linens used during the Liturgy of the Eucharist at Mass. A commitment to help would require a volunteer to care for the linens at his or her home approximately once every six weeks.
Although the job takes about one hour to complete, it is truly a labor of love to provide this important service for our Parish. Please contact Linda if you’d like more information.

ANNUAL FUND RAISING COMMITTEES

Contact: Parish Office 215-257-2128

Attic Treasures Rummage Sale is held on a Saturday in October. Parishioners may donate items that are sold in one designated area. Parishioners also have the option to purchase a table and sell their own items! The kitchen is open for light refreshments during the sale. Volunteers are needed to take donations the Thursday and Friday before the sale and also the day of the sale (helping customers, ringing up purchases, packing up goods afterwards). If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Dawn at the 215-804-5234.

Christmas Bazaar is held typically on a weekend at the end of November or early December. It is the major fund raising event of the parish. Various tables and the kitchen are run by our parishioners and feature gifts, crafts, baked goods and household items.  The Grand Raffle features valuable, interesting prizes thanks to the generous donations of parishioners and local businesses.

Vendors are also welcome to participate by purchasing a table. Please call Dawn (215-804-5234) if you would like to help or wish to participate as a vendor. Volunteers are always needed, and it makes for a great Confirmation Service Project!

Coach Bingo is a traditional bingo with a twist!  You have the opportunity to win beautiful coach bags!!  Tickets are sold in advance so look for the announcements in the Church bulletin and on our Facebook page.  We limit the event to 210 people so look for those early announcements that tickets are now on sale.   We also accept bag sponsorship to help offset the cost.  If you are moved to sponsor a bag for $150 dollars your name or your company’s name is announced as sponsoring that bag.   If you would like more information call Lesia Petrizio at 215-804-7975 or email

Scrip Program is a fundraising program that allows you to buy gift cards for a variety of local as well as national businesses (grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, and specialty stores). The way the program works is gift cards are purchased by our Scrip program at a discount and are in turn sold to buyers at face value.  The difference between face value and what the Scrip program paid for the cards is then split between the buyer (families) 70% and the program (to cover operating costs) 30%.  By participating in the program you earn credit to use towards school tuition at any Catholic elementary, high school or college/university.  You may donate your credit to benefit the parish, pay your tuition for the PREP program, or help a needy family.  It can also be donated to any program within the parish.  Scrip is sold every weekend in the narthex, before and after the 5:15 p.m. Mass Saturday, before and after the 10 a.m. Mass on Sunday, as well as after the 8 a.m. Sunday Mass.  Please contact Rose Lamphere 215-687-2902  or email if you need more information.

Knights are Catholic men, 18 years and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church.  Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.  Come see just what we are all about and take steps to enhance your personal life by being a Knight.  We are eager to meet you.

The Knights also have a 4th degree assembly (#3321) “Blessed Pope John Paul II” which is in conjunction with St. Isidore’s Knights in Quakertown.  Find out more about us by contacting any Knight of Columbus at St. Agnes Parish or visit www.kofc.org for more information.

THE LORD’S CUPBOARD (T.L.C.)

Contact: Tracey Pressley (215) 257-2128 x161

The Lord’s Cupboard is an outreach organization made up of both men and women who give graciously of their time and talents both during the holidays and throughout the year with the focus being on charity and service toward neighbor.  The Lord’s Cupboard consists of Meal-Makers who volunteer on an as-needed basis to prepare dinners for those members of our parish who could use a genuine “pick me up”, such as a patient being discharged from the hospital, a new mom, or as a thoughtful, caring gesture to a family member who has suffered the loss of a dear one.

In preparation for each holiday, season Basket-Makers organize and distribute holiday baskets.  Donations of canned goods, non-perishables and gift certificates of all types are accepted at any time.  These items are used to fill the baskets, help out those in need throughout the year, and if need be, aid the Meal-Makers in preparing meals.  When food donations are in abundance, the Lord’s Cupboard gives to the less fortunate in our community, in the name of St. Agnes Parish.

In order for T.L.C. to be a success we rely on the generosity of many.  We count on the concern of each parish member to notify us when we can be of service to one of our brothers or sisters in Jesus.  We invite you to become one with us, and give, in turn, that love which God has given you. If you are interested in volunteering, we have a variety of opportunities available.  Call and leave a message today.
