Pictured receiving the award are key individuals. Anthony was the International Bazaar Heifer table leader in 2010, Amanda in 2012, Elise in 2013 and Luke is the current leader for 2014. Casey Brantner and Camron and Lauren Roy have been and continue to be key participants in the fundraising. Numerous other children worked on the fundraising over the years. We tried to get as many as possible to come today for the picture but it’s difficult with everyone’s activities.

On Thursday November 20, 2014, St. Patrick will hold a Wine & Beer Tasting in the parish hall from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Come enjoy an evening with friends, have a light meal and taste a selection of wines and beers with Steve Leon from Wine Cellars4. All for $10

Tickets will be available after all masses starting on October 25th. Wines and beers will also be available for purchase with a percentage of sales being returned to parish. A good chance to stock up for the upcoming holidays.
Peace, Love & Happiness,

International Bazaar

The Catholic parish is called to engage in charity and justice. The International Bazaar is a social justice event at our parish, held on Nov. 22 and 23. We sell fair trade crafts and food, which guarantee a fair wage and support to the artisans from developing countries. Mark your calendar to shop local while thinking global. Youth and adults volunteers are needed.
