"Each of you has a unique place and context where you are called to reflect God's love." -Pope Francis
We hope you are planning to join us on Saturday, May 2 at 7PM for the All In Together: commUNITY fundraiser via livestream!

We have some fun and exciting things planned for you including commUNITY cocktails! Let's connect over a shared cocktail! ;) Signature cocktails have been developed and are available for pre-order through April 27. Drink deliveries will be made on May 1 and include most everything you need to follow the recipe and make the cocktail. (soda water or splash of sprite may be needed FYI) . There is even a fun option for the kiddos if you plan to make this a family affair!
