St. Finbarr

St. Finbarr annual Fish Fry dinner is Friday, February 23 from 4:30-7 PM. The menu includes fish, corn, mashed potatoes, dinner roll and homemade apple crisp. Adults $15, Kids 10 and under $8.00. All are welcome!

Take Advantage of the Sharing Library in the narthex. There are a few books to get started on the top shelf. If you like a book, take it home. Share your time reading it with your family and/or share your inspiration with others. Then if you have a book at home, bring it and add it to the library for others to enjoy. There is no cost, no checkout process, just take a book and be inspired and blessed. 

Contact Tye Davis if you are interested in reserving St. Finbarr social hall.

Volunteers are Needed for delivering meal-on-wheels. Please contact Theresa Wolff at 507-251-8178 to volunteer or if you have any questions.
