December 2019
The SMWA hosted their annual Christmas Luncheon on Dec. 12th right here in a beautifully transformed Guinan Hall.  What a spectacular event this was for sure!  Eighty guests joined together to share in the joys of the Advent Season. We were served a delicious lunch catered by Watson’s Catering.  Christmas Carols were sung, raffle and door prizes were won and the joy and love of our St. Micahel Parish community was felt by all present. Thank you to all who attended.  Please enjoy the many photos above.
