Saint Bernardine Day


This year, our “St. Bernardine Day/Big Cash Raffle” took place on Saturday May 19th.  Attendees enjoyed complimentary hot dogs, burgers and pop.  Volunteers donated an abundance of salads and desserts to share – no one went home hungry!  D.J. Boogie entertained the crowd and everyone was invited to join in a “sing-a-long” at the end of the evening.  Our Big Cash Raffle winners were announced (a list of names is available at the rectory), and all in all, the night was very enjoyable.

We hope to see everyone again at our next St. Bernardine Day in May of 2019!
