Holy Family Catholic Church
We are excited to be working on our Hopkins Convent this summer and would greatly appreciate help from parishioners! Below is a list of workdays scheduled.
Helpful tools to bring: those related to sheetrocking, framing walls, mudding/taping sheetrock, installing floors, and installing doors.
We will not be having meals during our Tuesday and Friday evening workdays, and will only have sack lunches on Saturdays, so that we will not use the kitchen or hall at St. Gabriel's.
Please sign up below to help with the work or to donate food. Food donation consists of bottled water and prepackaged snacks, including apples and bananas, on Tuesdays and Fridays for approximately 20 people; on Saturdays, donation consists of bottled water, snacks, and a sack lunch for approximately 25 people. Please note that 2 of the sisters can't have gluten, and 1 sister is lactose-intolerant.
The sisters have also asked for donations of dinner for them on the workdays (10-12 of them) so that they can keep working on the convent, rather than have to stop and prepare a meal. Dinner to be dropped off at 4:30pm that day. Snacks for evening work times can be dropped off at the same time.
Food can be dropped off the day before the work day by making arrangements with Harriet Lodermeier at [email protected] or 952-935-3716; Harriet is also the contact for any questions regarding the food donation.
The address of St. Gabriel's church is 1310 Mainstreet in Hopkins; the convent is located behind the south side of the church, just off the corner of 13th Avenue and Mainstreet.
