Blessing Bags

Women’s Fellowship is collecting items to be included in Blessing Bags.  Blessing Bags are for the relatives and parents of individuals who are admitted to the hospital suddenly.  They may not have anything available to them to clean up or keep them busy while their loved ones are in the hospital.  These bags will help to relieve some of that need.  There will be boxes for collection at each entrance. 

Women’s Fellowship will only be accepting travel size hygiene and miscellaneous items.  Each blessing bag will include the following:  tissues, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, wet wipes, mouthwash, deodorant, small bottles of water, granola bars (please be aware of the expiration dates), small spiral notebooks, and pens.  The last weekend for donations is the weekend of March 24th and 25th

You may donate through the collection boxes or by contacting Women’s Fellowship via e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  Please contact Janelle Wenzl at (785)250-4293 for more information or to donate.  Thank you!

Meal Ministry

Women’s Fellowship has a ministry that will provide meals to members of the parish that are in need due to an illness, surgery, a new baby or any other special circumstance.  The program is administered through the website  The website will allow you to log in and sign up to prepare and deliver a meal based on the days needed.  We have already provided meals for many families and individuals who have had emergency surgeries, cancer treatments, and other illnesses. 

If you have a need to receive a meal or meals at this time, please go to: Take Them a Meal Request under Links on the upper right of this page. As we hear of someone in need we will e-mail their name to all Women's Fellowship members.   Once you receive this e-mail, if you would like to sign up, you will sign in to and search for the delivery schedule, using the recipient’s information provided in the initial e-mail.  The information on the site includes the days meals are needed, the recipient's address, any food allergies, and any other information you may need.  Simply select the day you want to sign up for and input your information.  You will then receive an e-mail confirmation as well as an e-mail reminder the day before you are to take your meal. It is advised the entire meal be delivered at the same time.  One person can prepare and deliver the meal or a ‘team’ can prepare and deliver the meal.

Thanks for being involved in this ministry at MPHM.  Please send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information on how to get involved.   One parishioner who provided a meal  stated, “The meals we provide are given out of God’s love to show Christian Fellowship”.   We are called to serve our brothers and sisters and this ministry is a wonderful way to do just that.  God’s Blessings Always.
