On Saturday, September 7, the parish of St. Anthony of the Desert in Fall River hosted a BBQ fundraiser for the Maronite Servants in the Maronite Center.
With over 150 people in attendance from different Maronite and Roman Catholic parishes in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, the evening’s program was filled with gratitude for God’s blessings, a delicious BBQ buffet, and live entertainment.
We were blessed with the presence of both Maronite and Roman Catholic clergy, including the Dominican Sisters of the Presentation, who were a great means of support for the Maronite Servants in beginning this foundation.
We are most grateful to Msgr. James Root, Pastor of St. Anthony of the Desert, and his devoted parishioners for graciously hosting this event. This BBQ fundraiser could not have taken place without the help of many donors and benefactors, too many to be named here, who have overwhelmed us with their generosity in giving of their time, talents and treasures. We are most grateful to all who supported us.
