Net proceeds from our fundraising gathering will go to the Parish to help defray the Sharing God’s Gifts shortfall for 2016 and other parish operating expenses.

Our upcoming “Carnival” is another opportunity to support the needs of our parish and to celebrate the diversity of our community with a variety of food dishes, music, entertainment, dancing, karaoke, and other fun activities. In preparing dishes to share for the potluck dinner, please be sure to bring items to the church in a manner that protects food quality – i.e. preference is given to foods that are not prone to spoil and do not need cooking on site. It is important that we follow proper food handling procedures for the safety and enjoyment of all.
If you are willing to donate something suitable for the silent auction, please contact the parish office.
We also need volunteers to help set-up the hall, assist in the kitchen, and to join in the cleanup after the festivities have concluded. If you are able and willing to help out, you may contact Christine Carlyle at 204-889-0238 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Sharon Camier (see Sharon’s contact info above).
So we may be able to prepare ample supplies for the bar and the potluck buffet dinner, please obtain your admission tickets as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued support!
