Sunday Brunch for the Priory: Volunteers are needed to prepare Sunday Brunch for the Priory. Please show your appreciation to our Priests and Religious by cooking one meal for them! We ask for one person/family per weekend, so the more who volunteer, the fewer meals everyone cooks. For more details and to sign up, please visit https://takethemameal.com/PDCI7397. New dates available for June, July, and August. Thank you to all who help feed our Priory!
