Holiday Pancake Breakfast

The Knights of Columbus and Ladies Auxiliary of Council #12801 invite all parishioners to our annual Holiday Pancake Breakfast this coming Sunday following mass.   In addition to the usual breakfast fare, there will be a selection of baked goods for sale made by our Ladies.   If you are looking for holiday decorations or gift items for someone special, this will also be your opportunity to shop while you dine on breakfast.

We have it on good authority that there will be a special appearance that should thrill the children, so be sure to bring the entire family and enjoy some good food and company following mass.   Click on the calendar entry for more details.

Ladies & VFW Support Our Troops

 VFW Post # 5151

Accepting Donations

As Veterans Day 2012 approaches, it is fitting that the Ladies Auxiliary joined forces with VFM Post #5151 of Streamwood, IL to collect articles for our troops serving on foreign shores.  The Ladies donated close to 200 items and presented the officers with a check to help defray the shipping costs.

During our October Business Meeting, the Post Commander and three officers were in attendance to accept the donations and to present the Auxiliary with a Plaque of appreciation.  The program was coordinated by Carol Zaehler.

Please pray for our current Troops, Veterans and their families, especially during the approaching holiday season.
