K of C Council 11042 would like to offer a huge THANK YOU to the parishioners that were able to attend the October 9th Pancake Breakfast.  Because of your generosity, we were able to raise $540 for the parish’s “Raise the Roof” capital campaign to offset the costs of the new roof!!  The kind and giving nature of this parish is second to none.  We look forward to seeing you at our next breakfast coming in January!
