MLK service day opportunities


 JAN 15, 2024


St. Catherine's will be honoring the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend in a variety of ways.


  Contact Harriett Pyburn ( with any questions.


On Monday, January 15, we will participate in a service project honoring the Martin Luther King holiday (the only federal holiday that is also designated by Congress as a national day of service – a “day on, not a day off.”)  We will be working at Family Promise's newest transitional house that will extend the number of families they can serve at one time.  The house is located behind East Cobb Methodist Church on Roswell Road (2325 Roswell Rd).  All ages and abilities are invited.  If you have a pair of hand clippers or lopers, please bring them.  Otherwise, we will provide all supplies. 

Below is a sample of tasks we will be doing and sign up HERE to let us know you are coming - we have shifts at 10am and 1pm.  Both shifts will include light refreshments.
