Mystic Monk Coffee Winter Fundraiser
See message from Mr. Ganse
We are continuing our coffee fundraising efforts for the middle school N.E.T. Retreat which will be taking place in March. Our catalog is updated with the flavor of the month: French Vanilla. Checks should be made payable to St. Elizabeth Seton School for all orders. Our sale deadline is Wednesday, January 16th. Our middle school students thank you in advance. Not only do you support us with your purchase but you also help the Carmelite monks who roast and brew the coffee. Supporting two in one shot…blessings from heaven!
Peace in Christ, Mr. Ganse
Sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to our various fund-raising efforts from August through December. To date we have raised over $7800 to help our school. Nearly $2000 was sent to St. John the Evangelist School in Panama City to assist them after hurricane Michael. We look forward to a successful second term, with many more things planned, especially our gala auction. Please come to the H.A.S.A. meeting and learn how you can become involved!
