When St. Anselm held its last Sunday Social for the 2018 – 2019 academic year, the date was May 12th, but the weather was more like April – both in the temperatures and the almost daily deluge of showers. Nevertheless, parishioners gathered to enjoy delicious pastries and HOT coffee, tea, and cocoa while chatting and wishing the ladies who were present a “Happy Mothers Day”.
The highlight of the gathering was the drawing of the Youth Activities 50/50 Raffle (every ticket was sold!). Tom McCarthy, with his wife Mary, chair of the Sunday Social Committee, assisted Fr. Anthony in conducting the drawing and selecting the winning ticket. Jeanine Condon, wife of the president of Youth Activities – Jim Condon, then read out the name of the lucky winner. Congratulations to the winner and thank you to all the parishioners and friends of Youth Activities who purchased tickets! The annual raffle is an important fundraiser to support the many worthwhile programs offered by St. Anselm Youth Activities.
Another wonderful event sponsored by Youth Activities, and chaired by Tom McCarthy, is the upcoming Pastors Tournament on Friday, May 31st. In addition to being a great fun day, which includes lunch, raffles, and a post-play dinner, the event is another way of supporting the St. Anselm Youth Activities programs.
Many thanks to Sunday Social Committee Chairs Mary and Tom McCarthy and the 2018 – 2019 committee members: Barbara, Bob, Christina, Eileen, Josephine, Lynne, Marissa, Nancy, Pat, & Peter; and to Christine Deem and her junior volunteers: Catherine, Georgia, David, C.J., Jocelyn, Charlize, Matthew, Andrew, Rubi, Joseph, & Dante) for your much appreciated work for the Sunday Social. Join us at the next Sunday Social in September.
We’d love to see you there!
All the best,
The Sunday Social Committee
