HR Activities Group
The Activities Group Organizes events and socials for the parishioners of Holy Redeemer. Contact Cindy Quinn at 978-346-0072 or email Cindy. Some of our annual events include the Holiday Fair, Raffle Night, and the Parish Picnic/Outdoor Mass.
The Holiday Fair has been a long-running tradition in the parish. It is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving in the Nativity Parish Hall (4 Green Street, Merrimac). Parishioners donate themed gift baskets to sell, homemade baked goods, silent auction items, nearly new items and homemade soups for lunch. A grand raffle is held too. It is an annual event with the families of our parish. Planning starts in June. Please visit our Photos Page to see last year's event.
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, November 17, 2018, 9:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. We will be holding our annual Holiday Fair in the Nativity Parish Hall in Merrimac. As always, it is the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Please plan on attending. Invite your friends and neighbors. You can get a jump on Christmas shopping or come enjoy lunch: a selection of homemade soups.
Raffle Night is a parish social/fundraiser held in the Spring, in the Nativity Parish Hall (4 Green Street, Merrimac). This parish social helps everyone emerge from the winter.
