Help save a life…give blood

Join the Knights of Columbus on Sunday, December 6 from 8:30am to 12:30pm for a blood drive on Versiti’s mobile coach.  Attend Mass first and then give blood!

Parish Dinner Dance cancelled

Our Dinner Dance planned for November has been cancelled.

We will be in touch with all those who had purchased tickets. We have not rescheduled because of the virus.

We plan on having a raffle later in the Fall for the gift baskets that would have been given away at the dance.

Thanks to all who did such great work in preparation.

Thank you for your understanding

The Dinner Dance Committee
