Super Saturday Service Days (SSSD)

Help bring Mother's Day cheer to those families using the Lewis House shelter. We will make cards with the children to give to
their moms and help out with some other tasks to support this organization.
Join us from 10-12 on May 11th at the Lewis House in Eagan. Signup link HERE.
Super Saturday Service Days (SSSDs) are opportunities for those in the parish, with a special focus on youth and families, to provide service to those in need. Generally, each month focuses on one or two groups in our community – the elderly, the sick, the homeless, the hungry…and there is a service task related to their needs. So far we’ve done yard work for parishioners; made blankets and pillows for sick children; visited residents in a nursing home. On at least one Saturday of each month we will be hosting an opportunity to help in the community. Some opportunities will be held at All Saints, others offsite. Generally, an activity lasts 2-3 hours. Our goal is to broaden our parish's involvement in the larger community, especially for our youth. We'd love to see a mix of families and youth helping those in our community and parish who are in need.
- There may be limited spots available so PLEASE sign up online when requested.
- We will post updates about the event as needed on this page under the event itself.
- The online signup page provides details of special needs.
- Off-site service requires a Youth General Liability Form filled out.
- Individuals that sign up will be contacted via email or phone with details and confirmation.
Who can participate in SSSDs?
ANYONE! We do reserve spots for teenagers specifically in need of service hours. Depending on the activity and the age of the any youth involved, parental supervision may be needed or a liability form for minors.
When are SSSDs?
Saturdays! The week may vary. It depends on the project of the month. We generally plan the event to be two to three hours.
Where are SSSDs held?
This is also variable. The event may be at All Saints or “on location”. Participants are responsible for getting themselves to the event.
How do youth get a liability form?
Forms are available for download here. These forms are generic and need to be completely filled out with date, time, and location information.
Who is in charge?
The events are planned and directed by youth and adult members from the youth Service Ministry Team in conjunction with our youth ministers. Other parish staff may also provide leadership at service events.
What do adults need to do if volunteering to drive?
Adult first-time volunteers transporting youth must complete a background check one week before volunteering and provide proof of vehicle insurance. Please contact Chris Kuhn, 952-469-6466.
