Catholic Social Services hosts exciting events that connect us with the Anchorage community.  They also enable us  to partner with other agencies and show that we are united in our support of Alaska’s most vulnerable citizens.  We look forward to seeing you at one of the events below soon!

Skinny Raven New Toys and Towels Drive

Skinny Raven is hosting a New Toys and Towels Drive for Catholic Social Services on Tuesday, December 18.  Will you join them?  You can download and post or print their flyer below!

All items should be delivered to their downtown location at 800 H Street between 5:00 – 6:00 p.m., before their Pub Run begins.  All gifts will be delivered to Catholic Social Services and then distributed to people who are connected with one or more of our seven programs.

Winter Solstice Celebration

Anchorage Yoga and Church of Love are hosting a Winter Solstice Celebration to support Clare House. They invite you to participate in an event that will bring a little light into the lives of others.  It occurs on Wednesday, December 19 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Church of Love, located at 3502 Spenard Road.

Katey Inman and Sarah Glassett will lead a two-hour practice, embracing the darkness and celebrating the light by completing  108 sun salutations.  Please join them.  All proceeds for this donation-only class go to support Clare House.  The suggested donation is $20 and must be cash or check.  To learn more, check out their Facebook Event.

Scared Scriptless

Every December, local improv group Scared Scriptless hosts a show where all their proceeds go toward a charity of their choice. This year, they have picked Catholic Social Services!

Scared Scriptless is Alaska’s longest running improv comedy troupe, blending “words and movements thrown out in a continuous mix of voices, accents and energetic motions.”  You don’t want to miss this!  (Please note that this show is based on audience suggestions and often includes adult content and language, so it is generally recommended for adults.)

Will you join us on Saturday, December 22 at 8:00 p.m. as we laugh along to Scared Scriptless’ comedy while gratefully accepting their donation?  The show occurs at 49th State Brewing Co., located at 717 W. 3rd Avenue.  Buy your tickets now!

Christmas Eve Mass

Please join us as we celebrate Mass with Brother Francis Shelter guests and members of the community on Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24 at 6:00 p.m.
