We welcomed all of you, especially those who were coming back for the first time during the pandemic, to the outdoor Mass and BBQ. Due to weather condition, we celebrated the Mass indoors in our Church, however, we continued the evening with the BBQ in St. Celestine’s Parking Lot as it was planned. This was a good opportunity to come together as a community to give thanks to God and worship Him in the Eucharist. We hope you enjoyed your time together with good food, drink and music.
We would like to thank Laurie Depillo, our business manager, who organized this event along with our staff and volunteers. We also thank the Elm and Belmont Funeral Homes for donating $1,000 for the first prize for the raffle. We especially thank so many of you who bought the raffle tickets and to all of our parishioners who have supported us financially throughout the pandemic. Thank you for your generosity and continued support and the financial help that keeps our parish functioning well and growing vibrantly.
Congratulations to our raffle winners: $1,000 won by Frank Macchione, $300 won by the Wolk Family, and the $200 won by Fr. Paul was donated back to the parish.
