Next year in 2021, we will celebrate this major milestone in our parish’s his-tory. A committee has been formed to see how our community of faith would like to observe the 125th Anniversary. If you would like to be a part of the planning committee, please contact Fr. McLoud or Mary Gelhaus. We will be having our first meeting soon. More information about the special quasquicentennial celebration will be published as the details become available.
