2024 Saint Patrick's Day Dinner

The Saint Patrick's Day dinner was a great success! St. Catherine's would like to thank the entire community who showed up, whether you came in and enjoyed dinner with us, bought a to-go order, bought a raffle ticket(s), or helped volunteer! It also wouldn't have been possible without the generous donations of many local businesses and some individuals who gave raffle prizes, payed for the food and drinks, baked desserts, or even gave cash donations. We appreciate all your support in keeping our church alive and thriving. Last year's proceeds from the dinner helped repaint and refloor the parish hall, minor improvements to the sound system, supplement income to some struggling community members through donations, commuter boat tickets, and scholarships. This year's proceeds will help pay for even more repair projects, and no doubt also help some community members in need.

Wonderful kitchen staff! MANY thanks to (L-R) Phil, Adrian, Adam, Kathleen, Erica, Lucy, and Shelly!

Great job Sara and Betty at the bar! Thanks to Coyote Joes for hosting!

Stannis (R), and Connie (L) hard at work assembling baskets for silent auction.

Our religious education students (Confirmation) really pulled through and did a great job bussing tables, taking food tickets, and helping out with the event!

The Saint Patrick's Day dinners help pay for lots of church renovation, community projects, blood drives, and even replace broken, damaged, or dangerous tables that our church otherwise would not have the funds to replace.
