Letter from Father Rob

Dear Parishioners,

Our parish functions are important for our future!  We have had to make a few adjustments and innovations in order to continue our fundraising, due to restrictions.  Our inability to gather large numbers and to be assured all volunteers and guests are safe.  We will operate on a Carry Out basis only.    Please mark your calendar and support our Crab Cake  Carryout to be held on Saturday, August 1st.  Carryout pickup will be from 12 – 2 p.m. and 3 to 6 p.m.  Contact the Parish Office at 410-355-5740 or Eleanore Znamirowski at 410 360-1318 to RESERVE your carryout dinners and desired pick-up time.  A dinner is $22.00 and includes two (2) lump crab cakes with crackers, potato salad, cole slaw and dessert.  I am asking everyone to do their best to support this event.  Much thanks goes out to Bill and Mary Green and Family who have offered their assistance and expertise, along with Eleanore Znamirowski’s coordination with the Parish Office staff.
