5 days left for the Christmas wreaths fundraiser! Thanks to your hard work last year, we set a record by raising $5,275 and I am confident that we can exceed that amount and net $7,000 provided that we follow this easy 5-step process from now through Sunday, Nov. 17th.

1)   Sell as if it ALL depended on you! Our school serves an important mission in the life of the Catholic Church. In order for this to be successful, we need 100% participation. If we all take ownership, we will meet and exceed our goal easily.

2)   Sell in your neighborhood! Almost everybody lives in a neighborhood with an exclusive built-in customer base.

3)   Take advantage of opportunities to sell at your parish! Members of St. Helena Catholic, St. Joan of Arc, Holy Family (Rutherford), the Carmelite Monastery, and St. Thomas Aquinas have been given permission to sell after all Masses on the weekends of Nov. 9-10 and Nov. 16-17.

4)   Parents – Take an order form with you to your place of business during the week!

5)    Sell to your grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins!


great turnout at our inaugural Hop Creek Dine & Donate last Tuesday, Nov. 5th!  Due to your amazing support of this event, we KT will receive $500 back from Hop Creek! Thank you so much! No totals yet from our Monday Night Football party, but there was a good turnout and lots of take-out orders. A big thank you to Bob and Mary Quinn for pulling off another great community-building event and thank you to Everett Buyarski for manning the bar in my absence. Totals will be available next week so stay tuned.
