16th Annual Gala Results

Another successful Gala!!  Our October Gala netted our parish over $33,000 (click here for more details). Congratulations to all the winners. Again our own Maple Street Grille served a wonderful meal.  And the children had fun night in the catechetical center while the parents had fun with all the Gala activities throughout the night. 

The Gala is vital for the financial viability of our parish and to continue to offer our parishioners and community a great place for worship and social gatherings.  A big THANK YOU to everyone for their support and to those who helped pull this all together!!
