We have a wonderful opportunity to honor a great bunch of ladies from our parishes at the Hometown Hero’s Banquet on Feb. 5 being given for the K of C Ladies Auxiliary. These ladies have worked and served our churches and communities for so many years, fixing meals and serving them in order to be able to help our parishes and many other good causes. Recently they purchased the Angel Statue for in front of MPH as part of a new pro-life garden.  So please come for a great meal, good fellowship, and to honor our wonderful ladies....Fr. Dave
