A community of faith is bound together by more than worship services. At Holy Comforter, there are a series of events that bring parishioners together in fun and fellowship. Some are built around a special service, such as the Maundy Thursday Agape Meal, while others celebrate the season, like the Parish Picnic or Fall Festival. Family participation is encouraged in most events, while others are strictly for adults. Below is a listing of the parish's annual events.
Put on your blue jeans and straw hat for your hayride through Kenilworth. Enjoy hot apple cider while selecting that special pumpkin or a bagful of apples. This family festival celebrates the arrival of autumn and is open to the greater community. Hayrides and refreshments are free of charge. Locally grown pumpkins and apples are for sale.
Fall Fellowship Dinner
This themed-party celebrates our parish community. Adult parishioners gather in the Great Hall for refreshments, dinner and entertainment. The Fall Fellowship Dinner is held annually at the end of October.
Family Movie Night
Wear your PJs, bring your favorite pillow and curl up by the fire to watch a classic family movie. A pizza dinner and popcorn are included.
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
Our youth groups prepare and serve this traditional pre-Lenten parish supper. Reservations are not required, but are recommended.
An outdoor celebration of our parish family, and a kick-off to our summer schedule, the parish picnic begins with the Holy Eucharist at 10:00 a.m. followed by a picnic lunch, children's games, bingo and fellowship on the parish grounds. See pictures here...
Beach Party & Barbeque
Hosted by a parish family at their lakefront home, boating, beach activities, and a tasty buffet dinner are all part of the fun on a hot summer day. Parishioners of all ages come for all or part of the day. Live music and a barbeque buffet add a tropical touch to the party.
Ice Cream Social
This is our annual end-of-the-summer celebration which provides a social time for parishioners before the busyness of the fall begins. An event begins with an outdoor Eucharist at 10:00 a.m. followed by cool treats and fellowship on the parish lawn. Our hosts for this event are members of WHAM, our high school youth group.
