The Bakers Guild was founded in 2013 by a group of friends who enjoyed baking and decided to use their talents to raise money for parish or community needs. Our purpose is to enhance the parish life at SJN by offering home baked goods and handmade candy for sale at various times of the year. Our group offers fellowship and a relaxed atmosphere as we work together to reach our goals.
Annual activities now include:
Thanksgiving Pie Sale (Apple, Pumpkin, Pecan)
Christmas pageant refreshments
Valentine Candy Sale
Lenten Fish Fry Desserts (making and selling)
Easter candy sale
Periodic Bake Sales to support parish ministries and needs.
Proceeds from our efforts have benefited many parish ministries including the Neu Waves youth group, SJN Vacation Bible School, Scout troops, Zip shirt ministry, Blessed Sacrament-Huguenot scholarship fund, Columbarium fountain repair, and other maintenance needs at SJN.
Our Bakers Kitchen building housed the SJN Food Pantry, before the new Food Pantry opened in 2016. Renovations to create the current Bakers Kitchen were also funded by the Bakers Guild.
New members are always welcome. Baking and candy supplies and recipes are provided. If you’ve never made pie crust or a pie or candy, we'll help you learn. You're always welcome to join us during the time we're working and visiting with each other.
When we are working on a project, we meet twice a week in the Bakers Kitchen, the small white building next to the Food Pantry on SJN property. We meet Tuesday afternoons and Thursday mornings.
