Saturday, January 20, 2018                Parents’ Night Out XX: A Night on the Town Bourbon Street; 7pm-11pm

Join us to support Catholic Education; $30 in advance, $35 at the door.  We’re very excited about our twentieth annual “Parents’ Night Out” at Bourbon Street on Saturday, January 20, 2018.  We are using this opportunity to raise funds to support Catholic Education in our parish.  This “21 and over” event will include all our current families, families of alumni and parishioners in general.  We realize that in order to keep Catholic Education viable, we need to be proactive in supplementing the funding for our programs.  Can we count on you to help with this important effort?
