Thank you so much to our parish families who attended our breakfast last Sunday morning. It was a wonderful successful fundraiser for our St. Elizabeth of the Trinity, Fr. Michael Santiago scholarship. We served over 250
breakfasts to our parish community after all our morning masses. The continuation of these church community events not only raises money for our scholarship fund, but also brings out church together as a family.
Fr. Santiago awarded two scholarships on Sunday morning. Ashley Chieng was awarded the Fr. Michael Santiago Scholarship in the amount of a $1,000. Isabella Mazzucco was awarded the Fr. Vincent Lyddy Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $500.00.
