The Fall Dinner Committees are beginning their work to prepare for this annual event in our parish here at St. Mary’s. The plan is to hold the Fall Dinner as we usually do with contingency plans that may involve having only carry-outs if that is necessary and altering some other aspects of the day depending on the situation we find ourselves in months from now. Other parishes have canceled their events and some of our parishioners may think we should do the same. But the Fall Dinner is something that brings our parish family together and is something that would be very difficult to re-start if we are forced to cancel it this year. I believe that we should continue to make the preparations for the Fall Dinner and trust that we will have continued success in this parish-wide endeavor. I know that you all look forward to this annual event and so do many others from Glasgow and other communities who come to St. Mary’s for a wonderful meal and the shared happiness that the day brings. Thank you and God bless you all.
