Parish Events

We as a parish strive to create, organize and hold events for the benefit of our parish, our partner parish, and the local community.  Some of these events are held strictly for the parish and partnership while others are held to foster a welcoming atmosphere for the community and support social justice.

These events include but are not limited to:

Bi-Annual Chicken Dinner

Our buffet chicken/pasta dinner is held the 4th Sunday of April and October unless Easter conflicts in April. Besides being a fundraiser, this event is held to promote community involvement from within the parish and the surrounding communities.
