These will be included in a memory book. Please email in the pictures and/or a paragraph to Susan Bello at email@example.com.
This will be a free event. Donations to defray the cost of the dinner and for a monetary gift for Fr. Curtin are currently being collected. Donations can be mailed to the church — 100 Washington Ave., Newtown, PA, 18940 — to the attention of Ruth Mooney. Please specify with your donation how the funds should be used (dinner, gift or both).
Volunteers will be needed on Friday, October 15 at 7 p.m. to assist setting up the Parish House for the celebration.
