Christmas Hot Lunch

We are thrilled to bring back our traditional Christmas Lunch for the students and staff of St. Patrick’s School! This year we are hosting the December Hot Lunch on Thursday, December 15, 2022. This special event is held in the school gym, where all students and staff are invited to sit together and enjoy a traditional holiday meal.

The Hot Lunch Team is seeking donations of turkeys and/or hams, as well as financial support and parent time in order to keep the costs for this lunch as low as possible.

If you have a contribution, please note that on the form.

There is also the opportunity to donate the “cash value” of a Christmas meal to the Poor Clares, of the St. Clare’s Monastery in Mission.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to either our school office ([email protected]) or our Hot Lunch Coordinator, Jen ([email protected]).
