The 2018 IC/HC picnic is quickly approaching and we are busy at work to make it the best yet! This year, we have the usual games, rides, and food. In addition, we are adding a German band and dancers on Friday night, a Wiffle Ball Tournament Saturday afternoon, and Fireworks Saturday night.
Our 11th Annual Dinner Auction, Saturday, October 20th, is shaping up to be another fun-filled, action packed event this year for our parish and school. The funds raised by this event directly benefit our church and school. Last year's auction raised almost $70,000!
