CCD FUNDRAISER THANK YOU
Thank you to those who participated in our first religious education fundraiser. Your orders have been processed! You have made a difference!
Many of you may be wondering why a fundraiser for religious education is necessary. Yes, your registration money does help our program run. Thank you! However, with rising costs in all areas, registration fees no longer cover the expenses we incur to run the program.
It takes many hearts and hands to keep our parish and our religious education program running. Thank you for what you do to help us serve you and your family.
May God’s blessings be more than you can count,
Maureen Murtagh ~ Director of Religious Education
P.S. It’s not too late to place an order. Contact me for further details.
