Academy Auction. With the many COVID-19 restrictions and changes, we have decided to modify this year's Academy Auction format. The new date is Sunday, May 31st, and the silent auction will be held on the church grounds from 8:00AM – 1:00PM. The event is open to all parishioners, no tickets required (refunds to be given to those already purchased). You will be assigned a bid number at the registration table, and you do not need to be present to 'win' an item. We invite all parishioners to stop by anytime throughout the morning, bid on some fabulous items, enjoy some light refreshments, and support our parish school! Please see the flyer in the vestibule for a sneek peek at some of the items to be auctioned.
