At last weekend’s Diocesan Convention, the Women representing the Councils of
many Parishes in our Diocese donated $1,500. to our “St. Pat’s Hat Fund”.

Besides this donation, individual Parishes in the last year have made other donations separately to our fund.

In fact, our very first donation of $500. for our roof came from our own Parish League Council just prior to starting the Campaign in May, 2022.

Thanks to our League for their support!
