Shed Some Light for November 26, 2016


Thank you to the 50 crafters and vendors who participated in our Holiday Craft/Vendor Fair on Saturday, November 12. There were beautiful items on display created by these talented artisans. We are deeply grateful to St. Jude parishioners, the Engel gals, Marge, Karen and Kelsey, for the behind the scenes help. We appreciated the assistance of our student and alum helpers along with our teacher and parent workers. Thank you to the many parishioners from our founding parishes who attended our Holiday Fair. Thank you for supporting these local artists some which are our very own parishioners.
