Crafting and Cooking with the Saints

We are excited to announce that beginning in May - Crafting with the Saints will now be offered both in-person and via Facebook at the same time! Stay tuned for an exciting announcement about our June Cooking Session as well!

Are you looking for an easy, fun and interactive way to grow in Faith & connect in Community! This interactive series may be just what you are looking for! Once per month, join us on online via Facebook Live on the Immaculate Conception Facebook Page to participate in a guided tutorial, with an interesting Saint connection each month. 

We will alternate between a craft project and a cooking tutorial at 7pm on the last Thursday of the Month! These experiences are best suited for adults.

Anyone can join us, but to receive the craft kit or ingredient kit and recipe to make at home while you watch you will need to sign up in advance. 

You can sign up using by completing THIS FORM or if you prefer you can email or call Christine at 518-399-9203.  Sign ups will close the Friday prior to the each event put feel free to contact Christine to see if there are kits available after that.

May 27, 2021 - Crafting with the Saints
Tutorial will be led by Maria Yorkshire, IC Parishioner and Proprietor of Sunnyshire Crafts

We will be making a framed wall hanging featuring an inspirational musical piece.  Our Saint of the Month for May is Saint Dymphna.  A sample of the craft will be posted soon!

*** NEW FOR MAY ***  You will have the option of joining us in-person in the Parish Center on Thursday, May 27 to make your craft.  Maria will be guiding the project in-person.  We will simultaneously be LIVE on Facebook for those who prefer to craft from home!  We miss seeing people and having activities here at the Parish!  We also recognize that not everyone is able or ready to return to gathered Parish activities.  This plan for May is the best of both worlds!  In-person participants will have socially distanced work space and masks will be required.  If you have any questions, please contact Christine Goss via email or 518-399-9203.

When you sign up for our May Crafting - you will need to select if you plan to attend in-person or participate from home.  You can change your selection anytime by emailing Christine.  If attending in-person, your kit will be waiting for you at the Parish Center.  If participating from home, you will need to pick up your kit beginning May 24th.
