Please give generously.

NEXT WEEKEND: Our BBQ dinner with raffle will be held on Sunday, May 18th. The meal includes BBQ beef, sausage, potatoes, cole slaw, pinto beans, dessert, and tea. Parishioners whose last name begins with A – M are asked to please furnish a dessert for the meal. Adult plates and Plates to go are $8.00 and children plates under 12 are $6.00. Raffle tickets are available at the entrances of the church, please take several books. Prices are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.
