Father John's 40th Anniversary Celebration 

Please join us as we celebrate Father John's 40th Anniversary!


We will gather for the 5:00pm Vigil Mass of Thanksgiving for Very Rev. Father John Giel, VG, in celebration of 40 years of Ordination.

After Mass, we will gather in St. Patrick's Hall in the Parish Life Center for dinner.  Doors will open at 6:15pm, and dinner will be served at approximately 7:00pm. 


We anticipate a capacity crowd, as invitations have been extended throughout the entire Diocese (and beyond)!  Since space is limited, please purchase your ticket(s) early! Tickets will not be sold at the door.

The dinner ticket cost is $25 per person.  This is an adult only event.  The buffet-style meal will include: hors d'oeuvres, tossed salad, hand-carved prime rib roast beef, vegetarian lasagna (vegetarian alternative), new potatoes, vegetable medley, exclusive assorted desserts, tea and coffee.  Beer and wine will be available.  Please indicate if you require a vegetarian entree or a gluten free dessert.

We will have assigned seats.  You will need to purchase a full table of eight (ONLY eight, and the full table must be purchased together), to ensure sitting with whom you wish.  We need the name, email address, and phone number of each guest at the time of purchase.

Please consider providing a complimentary ticket for one of our invited guests to attend.  You can purchase these in the "Optional Additional Purchase" section.  Thank you for your generosity

We are looking forward to having you celebrate Father John and to honoring his 40 years of dedicated service to God, the Church, and his flocks!  Thank you!
