We were grateful to see so many people gathered in the gym to honor St. Joseph on Sunday, March 17. We are sure St. Joseph would be very pleased to see the table set in his honor. We would like to thank Jo Townsend, along with her hard-working family and the cooperative hands of many volunteers, who dedicated themselves to make this celebration even more festive and more meaningful. Jo, her family, and the Italian Catholic Federation have done the Joseph Table for more than 50 years. We are very grateful for their hard work. To Jo and to all her helpers and supporters as well as her sponsors – Thank You!!! May St. Joseph bless you for remembering him.
The sauce was donated in memory of Mary and Joe Sarlo, and Rocky Dote.
We would also like to thank the following businesses: Skip Saviano, Belmont Funeral Home, Anjeli Flowers, Da Luciano Restaurant, LoLo’s Sub Shop, Elmcrest Banquets, Tony’s Grocery, Reuter’s Bakery, Elmwood Family Restaurant, and Chicago International Produce Market.
At the St. Joseph Table, we pulled the St. Joseph’s Raffle tickets. It was a special occasion to honor St. Joseph and to ask him to intercede for us, our individual families as well as our parish community of St. Mother Theodore Guerin. This year, we believe through the intercession of St. Joseph and through all your support, we made a profit of $10,013. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to each and every one of you who helped us in this annual fundraiser especially our parishioners, religious education families, and school families. Without your effort, we never would have had such a successful fundraiser. Thank you!!
Congratulations to the three winners:
- 1st Prize – $2,000 – Bob Schmidt
- 2nd Prize – $750 – Paula Schulmeister
- 3rd Prize – $250 – Elizabeth Teasley
May St. Joseph protect and intercede for us!
