St. Mary's Rosary Altar Society

"Fun, Fellowship, and Faith Sharing"


Attention parish crafters!  Something new is happening at this year’s Rosary Altar Bazaar. We are inviting members of the parish who are crafters to display their wares at the bazaar.  Since this is our first time doing this, we are starting small and want to keep this opportunity for just our own St. Mary’s parishioners.  Please share this opportunity with anyone you know from the parish you think might want to participate. The bazaar is Saturday, November 13 and Sunday, November 14, 2021.  You will be expected to complete a registration form to display on the 13th.  You have the option to return during the Masses on the 14th. Booth fee is $35.  Here is what you need to do: Click on the Bazaar Crafter's Regsitration form link below.   Download that form and return the form in an envelope to the rectory address on the form by September 1.  As an incentive to return the form quickly, the first 8 forms that we receive, review, and accept will be given publicity in the parish bulletin for the month before the bazaar.  We will contact you if you are among the first 8 and establish what you would like to promote/say about your business in the bulletin. Inviting crafters will replace the sundry items we used to offer in the basement.  We will still have cinnamon rolls, a bake sale, and a raffle. We will also have visits with Santa!   Questions?  Call President Sandy Hoying at 937-547-9529.

We have something for everyone in this wonderful group of ladies. We bake, cook, craft, clean and decorate.  In all of our activities we honor our Blessed Virgin Mary along with supporting the needs of our church and uniting the women of the parish.  Every woman of the parish is invited to become a member of the society.  Membership dues are not required, but a suggested minimum dues donation is $10 per year.

Many thanks to funeral dinner team leaders Marsha Rieman and Peg Hadden.  You do a great job!  Many thanks to the ladies who donate food for the funerals as well.
