The Knights of Columbus and the parish are sponsoring the annual "Night Before Thanksgiving" Dinner on November 25 (Wednesday) from 6:00pm until 7:30pm. The Knights are providing the turkey and parishioners are invited to bring a dish or volunteer to serve.

The dinner is for the innternational students and faculty who don't have a place to celebrate Thanksgiving, for our students and faculty from places where they cannot go home for Thanksgiving or anyone else! Invite someone you know and bring them. They don't have to be Catholic or a member!

If you are interested in helping, please sign up in the Narthex of the Church or contact Basil Richmond ( or Buke Nichols (
