Another great St. Kevin’s bazaar is in the books

What a fun and festive event for our parish and all of our friends who visited last weekend to help ring in the Christmas season with our annual Christmas bazaar. It was a record crowd with great fun, delicious food, giant raffles, and crafts and treasures for everyone! The day was warm with old friends gathering and new friends stopping by–especially our new parishioners. This effort comes together after almost a year of planning and hard work. Our thanks to Lori Bose, the chairperson for this event and her dedicated committee as well as the many friends who helped to set up and and organize the kitchen, booths, displays, and vendors. As our major fundraiser for the year it also serves as an excellent FUN-raiser as we enjoy the day together. Many thanks to all who bought raffle tickets or donated items to our parish “New to You” booth. A great day for a great parish!

THE SEASON OF THANKS: In your pews are the envelopes to help us provide Thanksgiving baskets to the needy of our area. The non-perishable food can be donated at the doors of the church. Envelopes with your donation can be placed in any weekend collection. Many thanks for your kind generosity to the needy of our area.

Have a great week and God bless,

—Fr. Bob Marciano

Parish Giving is a safe, secure, and easy way to support St. Kevin and St. Benedict parishes by making your weekly budget donations online. Due to the social distancing guidelines requiring the temporary cancellation of weekend Masses, budget collections have dropped significantly even though the operating costs for our parishes have remained fairly level. Registering for a personal and secure online Parish Giving account is an easy way to continue to support our parishes during these confusing times.
