The Precious Blood Picnic is held on the third Sunday of August. All parishioners are needed to help in making this important event not only a financial success, but also a time to bring our parish family together. The picnic offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities for all parishioners to use their talents.


In February of each year this committee sells tickets for a cash give-away. Each weekend, from Easter through Christmas, cash awards in varied amounts totaling $12,500 are awarded to winning ticket holders.

Tickets are sold for $20.00 each.

Each year individuals who previously purchased a ticket are given the first opportunity to buy another. Remaining tickets are then offered to interested persons.

The Quilters make approximately one hundred quilts every year for the Quilt-of-the-Month Club and the quilt stand at the church picnic in August.

Quilt tops are made by ladies who donate their time and talent in their homes. The tops are quilted by women during group quilting sessions held in the Parish Center basement on Monday evenings and Wednesday afternoons from September through June. On the last Wednesday of the month, an all day quilting session is held. Some parishioners choose to quilt i their homes.

Lunches for the group sessions are provided by other parishioners. Donations to the quilting activity are used to purchase materials for these works of arts.

Each year about one hundred quilts are made for the parish. Twelve of those quilts are selected based on outstanding patterns, color, workmanship and variety to be Quilt-of-the-Month quilts.

Twelve hundred tickets are sold at $15.00 per ticket. Each ticket gives the buyer a chance to win at one of the twelve monthly drawings beginning in January.

Tickets are available at the beginning of November to the past ticket holders. Sellers have a list of those who bought tickets previously and those buyers are given first chance to buy tickets again. A few extra tickers are normally available for interested persons.

This is a parish fundraiser on the first weekend in December. Parishioners donate cookies for a "cookie walk", and homemade pies, rolls, noodles, craft items, Christmas decorations, raffle items and more.

Volunteers are needed at scheduled times prior to the bazaar for set up and to help operate the bazaar the first weekend in December.

The bazaar is advertised and open to the public.

This Precious Blood ministry is guided by the spirit of St. Nicholas to help others during his celebrated feast day and the most blessed season of the year. Members of Precious Blood parish gather together the first weekend of December, to prepare and sell homemade lasagnas and homemade apple pies. The funds from this ministry are used for parish family and community needs. These funds also will be used to help build a home for a family in a third world country.

Gifts contributed to the Endowment are for the irrevocable Precious Blood Church Fund. These assets are permanently invested so that only the earnings can be used to subsidized the future costs related to the operation of the Precious Blood Church.
