Project Thanks

This special Thanksgiving meal for Sparta senior citizens has been a tradition at St. Mary’s for more than 30 years.  We donate and prepare a traditional Thanksgiving Feast for more than 100 senior citizens in Sparta; for most of them, this will be their holiday dinner. This event is sponsored by the Outreach Committee and many helping hands. The Senior and Junior Youth Group help to serve the meal.
