Calvary’s Annual Art Show is held in November. Local artists show and sell their artwork. Various activities throughout the weekend have included wine glass painting, a chalk walk for students, a luncheon cooking demonstration, and DIY painting classes.
The artists donate a portion of their sales to Calvary which is then donated to a charity in the community.
Boar’s Head Feast
The festival we know today originated at Queen’s College, Oxford, England. Legend has it that a scholar was studying a book of Aristotle while walking through the forest on his way to Midnight Mass. Suddenly, he was confronted by an angry wild boar. Having no other weapon, the resourceful Oxonian rammed his metal-bound philosophy book down the throat of the charging animal, where-upon the brute choked to death. That night the boar’s head, finely dressed and garnished, was borne in procession to the dining room, accompanied by carolers singing “in honor of the King of bliss.”
A Community Service at Christmas for those who are grieving, praying, healing, hoping or alone. For many who are alone or have lost a loved one, this is a time of sharp loneliness. For others, who have lost a relationship, health, a job, or had a financial setback it may be a time of pain, confusion, or fear. This is not a joyous season for everyone. Remembering is a huge part of our faith. So while we can’t change the past, we have incredible power to change how we remember moving from distressing memories to memories of delight and thanksgiving.
Men’s Annual BBQ Sale
The Men’s Club cooks and sells pounds of BBQ and Boston Butts each July as a fundraiser. Proceeds go to assist various charitable causes in the community.
