The Catholic Daughters of the Americas Court Sacred Heart #829 will host the annual “Taste of West” luncheon on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, at the St. Mary’s Parish Center, 507 W. Spruce Street in West, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  The donation for Adults will be $8.00, and Children $4.00.  “Take-outs” will be available.  There will be a Silent Auction during the luncheon.  Raffle tickets are available for $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00.

CORRECTION TO MOVIE NIGHT: Our parish will not be showing Ignatius Press movie, “Pius XII: Under the Roman Sky”. Due to the length of the film and some of the graphics in the film, we have changed the feature presentation to “Scarlet & the Black”. The time and date of the film, 7:30 p.m. on Friday, June 17th,  in the parish hall, has not changed.  Admission is free, but donations are welcome. Proceeds will benefit our CCD program. The film starring Gregory Peck and Christopher Plummer focuses on the true story of moral courage during Nazi-occupied Rome.  The Vatican official Monsignor Hugh O’Flaherty wages a secret campaign against the Third Reich. The film “Under the Roman Sky” will be available in our CCD library for those that wish to view in at home. Don’t miss this opportunity to gather for fellowship, entertainment, and refreshments.
