Lodge 321 August News
Strawberry Shortcake Social
On Saturday & Sunday, June 15-16, 2019, following the Liturgies, GCU Lodge 321 honored all parents of St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Church by hosting a Strawberry Shortcake Social. GCU Home Office provided giveaways and the local lodge gave every attendee a St. Nicholas of Myra medal. Seventy parishioners attended.
This was the fifth annual celebration where parishioners were asked to make a free will donation for a specific cause. In past years, local organizations received the generous support of the members of St. Mary Church, and GCU donated Matching Funds. This year, because the Church needs a new roof, guests were asked to donate money for the ''New Roof Fund." Once again, parishioners showed their generosity and love of St. Mary Church by donating over $3,800.00. With with the new GCU Matching Funds policy, St. Mary's New Roof Fund will be supplemented by another $3,000.00.
Lodge 321 would like to thank everyone who donated for this cause and the GCU for providing the Matching Funds.
