THANK YOU: A big thank you to the Knights of Columbus for constructing the covering behind the Parish Hall. We appreciate your many hours of hard work and service to our parish.  The project was funded by a memorial donation from the family of the late Tracy Smajstrla.

The meal consisting of spaghetti and meat sauce, salad bar, garlic bread, dessert and drink is from 11:00 a.m. – ? Adult plates and plates to go are $8.00, and $6.00 for children under 12. Please invite your family and friends to come out and enjoy a delicious meal and fellowship. Parishioners whose last names begin with A – M are asked to please bring a dessert to be served with the meal. Raffle tickets are available at the entrances of the church. Please take and sell to family and friends. Also, if anyone wishes to make a cash donation towards the meat or other ingredients, please put it in a specially marked envelope and place it in the collection basket.
