New Families

Welcome to Friends & Family of St. Anastasia Catholic Church!

Thank you for your interest in our ministry!  My name is Melinda Gwilt. I volunteered to take the Ministry Leader role in August 2020. My husband, Jamie, and I have been involved with Friends & Family since August of 2017. We have two kids at St. Anastasia school. Blake is in 6th grade and Jack is in 1st grade. Our family loves to help the church and school with events, so this ministry is great for us! We hope you will enjoy it too!! 

Each month our ministry has a planning meeting and/or event.  All activities are listed on the front page of this website.  All families will receive participation points for each meeting and event they attend by signing our attendance book.  As a new family, please don't get overwhelmed by our new participation point system.  We will help you out along the way!  Please check out our Participation Point page for more details. 

If you are interested in joining us, please come to our next meeting or event!  Also, please join our group on WhatsApp to keep informed of any announcements we may send out.  

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or have new ideas!! Looking forward to meeting you!
