Does your parish do any fundraisers? Do you help out with any of them?

No, we don't. Our parish - we actually aren't technically a parish yet but will be soon - is pretty small and people tithe more money than the Church needs and so we have a good chunk in savings. My DH is on the finance committee - that is the only reason I know that about our Church. We are planning a major construction project to make the Church bigger and fix the hall so I'm sure we'll need people to give more but we've had a "building fund" for a few years and it is pretty substantial so I don't think we are that far off from what we need.

We don't. I don't really remember them announcing any fund raisers in the announcements, really. But I doubt we'll have time for a fundraiser. We've never really participated in any as of yet.

The only fundraiser our parish does is the big Mardis Gras celebration. I do usually help out, and we attend as well.

Mine doesn't either. Well I guess we do have an annual thing were after church you can go to the hall and eat, I'm not sure how much it costs. Then upstairs they play games and have a bake sell and quilt drawings. As far as I'm aware though they don't say what the money is for.

Our parish has 3 fundraisers this year mainly for the building campaigns and expansions (up from 2).

DH and I are active with festival planning and volunteering. The parish that is attached to the kiddo's school is also in the middle of an expansion we participate in that as well.

All of the Catholic churches around here have some sort of Bazaar - usually in the fall. We haven't participated in ours. I did donate some items to the bazaar one year, but usually it slips my mind. We don't go because we aren't all the great with crowds and we don't know that many people in our church. My IL's participate in theirs - FIL is a K of C member.
