Corporate Communion

The Corporate Communion we had  May 29th at the 6:00 PM Mass was sparsely  attended. We did have 3 greeters, Rick Berry, Eric Schafer, and Jack Dalgleish, and the Lector was Mike Fox.  There was no procession on our part. 


It’s that time of the year now. Jack has sent out notices to the remaining   members who have misplaced their dues notices.  Let’s get the dues in, guys. 

Tootsie Rolls

Unfortunately the various special needs organizations that we give to will suffer. Since Wal-Mart refused to allow us to solicit ant the doors.  But there is a solution. Send in a donation to either Jack Dagleish or Tim Hoffman and they will pass iton the funds to the organizations.  Make out your  check or money order (addressed to K of C Tootsie Roll Drive) to Tim Hoffman, 1014 Fairmount Dr., Madison or by email at
