We have made our Goals 

for this year's Hope appeal!! 

The St. Francis Bingo program will be starting back up on
April 4th and it runs every Thursday from 6pm-9:30pm.

The program is always looking for new Volunteers. If you are considering
to become a Bingo volunteer, there are a variety of tasks that need to be done to continue the success of the program. Time commitment can be anywhere from one hour once every 5 weeks to more if you are willing. Tasks can be: Kitchen - prep, cook or serve items; Floor workers – call back number to verify cards, bring prize $ to winners, wipe down tables at the end; Card Sales – sell game cards to participants; Pull Tab sales – sell game cards to participants; etc. If you are already a Bingo volunteer, Thank You! We can’t do it without your help. Your acts of kindness may look small, but their impact on our Parish finances is enormous - the 2023 Bingo program raised OVER $45,671.00 dollars!
Volunteering will not make you a millionaire financially, but it will make you a billionaire in terms of God’s blessings.

Please see or call

Patti Koch (315) 575-5391, or Dave Stevens (315)264-5764
Iif you would like to offer some of your time to help out.

Thank you so much for your support and generosity during the weeks of the Lenten Fish Fry's we had  a very successful year. We are still finalizing everything but we are delighted to say this was our best year ever. Thanks again. We could not have done this without you.
