Kibbee Day for Festival – Tuesday 5/31/22 at 1000 AM – Volunteers Needed

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

Tuesday, May 31, at 10:00 AM, we will gather at St. Anthony hall in Fall River to prepare the Kibbee for the festival. I thank Msgr. Jim Rood and the parishioners of St. Anthony for allowing us to use their facilities once again.

If you are able to come and help, I would very much appreciate that. Please let me know if you are able to attend and we will see you there for Kibbee Day. Once again, your help is necessary to make this festival a success. Thank you in advance.

In Christ,
Fr. Vincent
