Words with Wilson
Tonight we celebrate our annual Reverse Raffle and Auction. It is such a great event that generates a lot of money for our parish and school. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of our parents who donated so generously to the class baskets. These are always a really big hit, and they wouldn’t be possible without your generosity. Please know how much I appreciate all of the sacrifices you make on a daily basis to make St. Roch great!

A special thanks to all of our parents who volunteered to work a shift tonight. We appreciate you!

Have a great weekend!
