After carefully monitoring the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone our Father Baker Day Mass usually held on the anniversary of Father Baker’s death in July until September 6, 2020 and combining it with the parish “Pennies to Heaven” and chicken BBQ fundraiser.

Sponsorships are available that include chicken BBQ dinners and advertising opportunities.  More information on sponsorships can be found here.

We invite you to begin to collect your “pennies” (and larger coins!) for the time-honored tradition of dropping your collected coins in the front of the OLV Basilica on Sunday, September 6th. Following noon Mass, please join us for our “Pennies to Heaven” parish fundraiser featuring a take-out Master’s chicken BBQ dinner and two raffle baskets.
