 A Shout Out of Thanks

​To everyone who was a part of this 37th annual event - from our parishioners who served as committee leads; those who baked goods; those who donated baskets; those who helped with promotion, and all of dozens upon dozens of volunteers who gave of their time and talents for months, weeks and days leading up to the big event - our sincere thanks for giving back to your community and spreading Jesus to all those who set foot on our grounds.  

Thank you also to all of our sponsors. No matter how big or how small your donation was - it mattered - and we are super grateful for your gift of service to our Catholic community.
