Many friends of the home filled the auditorium Friday night for our “fish and chips” Lenten fundraiser dinner. Sr. Rose and her helpers prepared lovely tables. The postulants and novices, who came from the novitiate next door, and students from Kellenburg and Chaminade High Schools came to help with the serving. The kitchen staff worked diligently to prepare the fried fish and homemade French fries and cookies for the event, using donated fish and potatoes given to Sr. Elisabeth Anne during her collecting rounds at Hunts Point Market. Thanks to our servers and a good organization in the kitchen we were able to serve the over 280 guests in under 17 minutes! Members of the auxiliary helped prepare beautiful Easter baskets and other items for the raffle. After the meal a quartette of young women from Kellenburg entertained the gathering with angelic singing. Thus the generosity of those attending the dinner was joined by the collaboration of all those who helped put on the event to benefit our residents, and rose up to God as a Lenten offering of praise.
