OVER $430,000 RAISED SINCE 2008!
OVER $10,000 RAISED IN 2022!

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

Thanks to all of you for your efforts in making the 14th Annual Shamrock Shave (held last March 19th) a successful fundraising event for our parish community and those in need.

Thanks to your efforts, we collectively raised over $10,000 for the needy in our community (St. Vincent DePaul Society). We also had 7 men and children Shavees, an estimated 200 adults and children in attendance throughout the evening, and served over 200 Irish dinners! It is great to see our parish pull together and “answer the call,” especially on such short notice. When planning began in December and Omicron was taking a toll, we weren’t sure we would have a live event.

To see members of the Knights of Columbus, St. Vincent de Paul Society, and other parishioners volunteer to make the event happen has blessed our Parish Family in so many ways. Thanks to your commitment to the event, we exceeded our goal and had a lot of fun raising money for a very worthwhile cause… more than $10,000!

To All the Shavees: Your commitment to the parish community and helping those in need is inspirational… may your bald heads be examples to those in the parish and community of our parish’s commitment to charity!

To the 2022 Shamrock Shave Planning Committee: Andre Manaois, Deacon Bob Armstrong, Amy & John Schneider, Ken Prigge (Chef) and Ingrid Prigge, Financial Advisors Larry & Julie O’Brien and Chris Cimaglio, and Ed & Carol Majkrzak, Mark Minaglia, Kevin & Julie Fitzgerald, Rene Mendez & Joanne, Michael Kouvelis, Tim O’Neill and many others that came out to help. Thank you for all of your hard work on event day and your great creativity and planning for the Mane Event!

To the Event Volunteers, including members of the following parish groups and ministries who helped ensure the event ran smoothly: Knight of Columbus Council #11091 and the St. Vincent DePaul Society.

Lastly, special thanks to our Pastor Fr. Witold, and Fathers Peter and Daniel for their support of the event.

Thanks to all of you for your contribution of time, talent, and treasure in support of this very worthwhile cause.

“Well done good and faithful servant.”
~Matthew 25:23
