On Tuesday, December 3, 2019 our St. Francis parishioners catered a joyful Christmas Dinner for the families and staff of Foundations Preschool in Ann Arbor and the Young Adults of Washtenaw County.
Both these groups and our parish St. Vincent Service Committee would like to thank the many volunteers including those who provided delicious food, those who set up and decorated, those who served the meal and cleaned afterward and those who supervised the children's activities. We especially would like to thank Ms. Linda Opaleski and the St. Francis School Choir for their beautiful Christmas music and Santa Claus himself for visiting the children.
