Altar Rosary Society - Spring Fling Card Party - April 21, 2022  Thank you

A special thank you to the ladies who worked to pull it all together: Michele and Linda (Success of this event was due to the work you both did.  This work cannot be matched, forever our Spring Fling leaders).  Clementina, thank you for your vision of organizing our gifts and table arranging.  To all the ladies who bought tickets, donated items and baked goods, worked, attended and make this the best organization to support our Parish, the community and one another.

Success of our work comes from the Grace of God and we are very blessed to know such grace.
