COMING SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17! We return to the Matthew Glab Post, 1965 Abbott Road, Lackawanna, a proven venue for our meat raffles! Why go to a Meat Raffle? Once you go the first one, YOU WILL BE HOOKED!! It really does have something for everyone: you are providing money to an organization that can certainly use it. If you have a gambling itch, you can make the most out of a cheap afternoon out. Free beer is always a big draw. And…YOU CAN WIN MEAT! Once you have been, you will go again, and again!

Doors open at 1; first spin at 2. $5 admission includes beer/wine/soda and entry to win the grand prize of $100 cash. 50/50 drawings and theme baskets too! Bring family, friends and co-workers…reserve a table and let the fun begin! Don’t forget your dollar bills and a cooler for your winnings. Pizza available for purchase. Snacks provided but you are welcome to bring your own (no outside liquor permitted). Tickets now available by calling the Parish Office – 893-0412 9-noon Mon-Fri or Diane: 897-3562.


PREVIEW FOR ANNIVERSARY MASS/DINNER ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 19: A Mass of Thanksgiving will be celebrated by Rev Richard Malone at 1 p.m., assisted by Kanty’s grads who went on to the priesthood. Following Mass we will head to The Millennium on Walden Ave for an hour of hors d’oeuvre with cash bar, followed by a delicious family style dinner featuring Polish style pork chops and roast beef, with all of our favorite sides, wine at your table, and dessert. You will listen to and dance to Rare Vintage, our go-to band for our Polka Masses. Tickets will be available September 1 through the Parish office: 893-0412 Mon-Fri, 9-noon. Gather your family and former classmates and plan to be with us!
