12th Annual School of Religion Bake Sale a success
Posted by. St. Maria Goretti Church on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 11:16 PM

The 9th and 10th graders of the St. Maria Goretti High School of Religion sponsored their 12th Annual Home Baked Goods Bake Sale for three Ugandan priests who were educated at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans before being ordained for their home dioceses in Uganda in 2005, 2006, and 2007.  This year, as a result of the wonderful participation of our students who did the baking and the parishioners who bought the treats, the sale raised $420 even though the weather was rainy, windy ,and cold.  Because of the generosity of Goretti's people ,Fathers Daniel, Alex, and Mark will each receive $140 for his individual parish and ministries.  What a wonderful combined effort between the teens and  the parish.  How fitting that during Lent, we were able to put into practice the Corporal Works of Mercy for the benefit of our brother and sisters so far away. 

Thank you Goretti.  You are the  best.
