 4th Annual Christmas Cookie Sale: December 17/18 after all Masses

"A huge thank-you to those who baked and those who bought our homemade cookies in 2015. Last year was our most successful sale by far. By the end of the noon Mass, we sold every last cookie, cake, and bar!"

  • Bakers are needed! We are requesting that each baker donates six dozen cookies if possible, in order to meet demand and maximize our fundraising for those in need. However, please donate what you can, if six dozen is too much.
  • Bake ahead and freeze your items, for your convenience!
  • Deliver your baked goods in disposable containers to the PAC Room on Saturday, December 17 between 9:00-10:00 AM.
  • Volunteers are needed on Saturday, December 17 to set up tables; package cookies; transport cookies to the church; and clean up the PAC Room. Cookie sellers are also needed at each Mass on December 17 and 18.
  • Please email, text, or call for more information.
