ANNUAL MARDI GRAS ~ NIGHT AT THE RACES
On Saturday, February 23 from 5 PM until 11 PM we will once again have our Annual Mardi Gras ~ Night at the Races. If you remember, this event was SOLD OUT early last year. You can BUY A TICKET, PURCHASE A "HORSE" for $10 or be a sponsor for this great event. Consider becoming a SPONSOR! I hope you are able to make this a huge success for Saint Mary Parish.
This weekend, after all Masses preview and take a chance at winning a wide selection of high-end electronic items. 50/50 tickets will also be available to purchase. The more tickets sold, the bigger the jackpot! You need not be present to win!!!
We are in need of a couple more adorers, especially for Wednesdays and Fridays. Please contact Mary Katherine at 610-476-4490.
