Annual Spring Dinner Raises $111, 693


Thank you to everyone who played a part to make the 2022 Spring Dinner/Auction, “Puttin’ on the Ritz” a success! The Spring Dinner committee is excited to share that this year’s event raised a total of $111,693, with $30,185 to support the church’s special project to build new confessionals. The Spring Dinner event is the parish and school’s largest annual fundraiser, and general proceeds are used to balance the school’s budget. We are truly blessed by the generous spirit and stewardship of all those who have given so much of themselves to the success of our church and school.
