    Thank you to some of the youth of our parishes that together with Therese Mohay and Gabi (our youth minister) made warm blankets that were donated to Mitch's Place.  These blankets, we are sure, will help to keep warm those in our community that are most in need.  Thank you to Gabi, Therese and kids!


         5th Annual 5K Fun Run and Rosary Walk   


THANK YOU to everyone that came out and made our 5th Annual 5K a success.  A fun morning was had by all.  It was a beautiful morning for a run or a walk followed by a delicious breakfast. Many thanks to Eric and Kathy Darby and their team of run volunteers and to Mary Dodier and all her kitchen volunteers.  Together they all made it an enjoyable day.  All funds raised will be divided equally between The Emmaus House, Pregnancy Care Center and the Open Hand Pantry.  Thank you for helping us to help those most in need in our own community.   

          Thank you to our sponsors:  2014 Race Sponsors
