27th Saint Jude's Church Pancake Breakfast. 15791

07/14/2019


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Eight council brothers and their families participated in the 27th Annual Saint Jude’s Fourth of July Pancake Breakfast on Thursday July 4th, 2019. Hundreds of people got their Fourth of July celebrations off to a hearty start at the all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast hosted by St. Jude Church in Freeport and the Holy Eucharist Council 15791. The meal was excellent, the food was delicious, and those in attendance didn’t have to cook it. St. Jude Church, part of the Parish of the Holy Eucharist, has hosted the pancake breakfast for 27 years, drawing people from miles around. Nearly 700 people attend each year, and volunteers said this year’s breakfast was one of the best. Every table in the parish hall was filled throughout the three-hour event. “Some of the customers stated they not only come here for the good food, but they said they meet old friends here once a year and catch up on one another families. It’s lovely,” said one of the organizers. “It’s just wonderful, everybody getting together and working together. It’s a community effort,” said one of the council brothers wives who enjoyed blueberry pancakes and had earlier helped to decorate the hall with other volunteer’s. It took approximately 60 volunteers to put on the breakfast. That includes the ticket sellers, the cooks, the servers, and those clearing tables and washing silverware. Many of the volunteers have helped out for years, some since it started. One of the parishioner’s has been working on this Team for the last 26 years. “It’s community. We have a lot of fun. We joke around here, and we raise money. What more fun can you have?” The money raised from this Pancake Breakfast will go into the Capitol Campaign Fund for Saint Jude’s Church. The total gross for this year was $5,000.00. After paying the bills we cleared $3,200.00. The knights played a big part in this event again this July by not only doing odd jobs as required but picking up the grills, cleaning them and setting them up for the Pancake Breakfast. The Knights also cleaned them up after the meal was over, and delivered them to their next location for use. GOD was truly good in watching over and allowing this day to be possible. Blessings to all the Knights, and their families and the parishioners who worked to make this event another success for Saint Jude’s Church and our Parish.

Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Six council brothers and their families participated in the Mass at Saint Gregory’s on Saturday July 13, 2019. Once a year we are pleased to be able to host and welcome a Missionary Group into our Parish. We have always found it amazing to hear about these groups and the amazing work they do within their country. This month we had a Priest from the Society of Saint Paul of Nigeria. We found his homily to be very blessed and heart warming. As part of the Mass today our council brothers participated as this weekends priest, a reader, server, and we also at the end of Mass handed out flyer’s to the parishioners as they left church. We look forward to the next visit of a Missionary and hearing of their ministry. May GOD continue to watch over and Bless them.
