We appreciate your help and thank you in advance. For any questions, please call Kathy Kanney at 419-347-5177.

Please help where you can. We have candy making, noodle making, and will be in need of raffle room donations, baked goods and additional candy donations.

If you like making your gift by hand, we will also have the Pinterest room open again.

"Whether I am in the classroom, speaking on stage, writing, or creating art, my goal is to inspire people to live richer and fuller lives."
Our Advent Reconciliation Service will be held on December 11 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Following the service, the Altar and Rosary, will have a soup and sandwich supper for a free will donation.
