On Friday, October 4, St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Church hosted it's famous Tricky Tray event to a capacity crowd. Lodge 254 member Marge Pavol was the chairwomen and coordinator of the event. It took plenty of Lodge 254 and church members to make this event a success. More than 500 people attended and over $40,000.00 was raised for the parish!
Sunday, October 13 the St. Mary Church Byzanteens prepared pork rolls and egg sandwiches for sale under the watchful eye of coordinator Christina Duncan. This fund raiser was for their 2020 trip to the Byzanteen Youth Rally in San Diego, CA.
The children of St. Mary's experienced a surprise when ECF classes began this fall. Lodge 254 sponsored an "Icon Corner" that was installed in each of the 8 classrooms.
GCU member and ECF coordinator Julie Klikus researched, purchased and supervised the project from beginning to end. What a great way to show our children how to pray to our Lord and Savior.
