Parish Appreciation Party – February 3, 2018

Our Annual Parish Appreciation Party was held, Saturday evening, February 3, 2018.  Anyone active in a Church organization or serves in any ministry was invited to attend.  The evening began with appetizers, followed by a delicious dinner catered by Smyrna Diner.  We enjoyed the beautiful voice of Cindy Shields – also known as “Patsy Cline”.  Of course, as always here at St. Polycarp, there were plenty of wonderful desserts!  The hall looked beautiful! Thank you to the event planners and everyone who helped make this such a wonderful evening!  And to all who serve here at St. Polycarp, you are wonderful examples of putting faith into action.  We thank you and may God bless you for all you do.

Turkey Drop-Off – December 14, 2017

Thank you parishioners, Knights of Columbus, Columbiettes, members of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdeP), and everyone else who helped SVdeP provide a Christmas meal for 77 families in the Smyrna-Clayton community. SVdeP Vincentians (members) were able to deliver 62 turkeys, 11 hams, a chicken and 37 food gift cards. Thanks to a grant from WBOC’s “Bless Our Children”, we also gave 68 Walmart gift cards to children in need.


Each year the cost of putting food on the table and paying the bills becomes harder to bear. It is only through the generosity of our parishioners and other benefactors that we can help our neighbors meet these obligations. Our overhead is very low; about 97% of the contributions SVdeP  receives go to the clients’ assistance.   If you or someone you know in our community needs assistance, please contact SVdeP: 302-264-6630 (cell.)
