roasted chicken christmas dinnerYou came through again!! Many, many thanks!!  Not only did we collect the actual frozen chickens, but we also collected $400.00 to purchase more if needed.

We’ll apply any extra money to complete the ‘Christmas meals”  and buy cranberry sauce, veggies, etc. that we’re unable to get through the Western Mass Food Bank.

Roasted Chicken Recipe here.

Our parishioners are some of the most generous people around!

God bless you all with a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!
