Centennial Celebration

We are now in the process of forming various committees for our Centennial Celebration which will be held next year, 2023. We are so grateful and excited in anticipation of such a great occasion, but we need you, your ideas and gifts. Some of these projects will include a new parish directory, gathering facts about the history of our Church, organizing photos and stories for possibly a book or video, promoting our event including on social media, the actual celebration Mass and dinner, and planning the decorations for that day. We are also open to any other ideas you think we might be interested inCLICK HERE  for more information.
