Prior to COVID, members of our Council would host a pancake breakfast for parishioners, especially those who were new to the parish community. The parish is looking forward to the day when we the smell of pancakes and bacon fills the parish!

Our worthy Grand Knight, Roy Pinto, is prepared to offer refreshments to parishioners during our Pizza and Ice Cream Parish Tailgate party. The Knights are dedicated to serving the parish whenever and however the need arises.
