Altar Servers’ Ice Cream Social

Thursday, August 28th, Fr. Larry hosted a special get-together for the Altar Servers of St. Francis Xavier; to thank them for their continued service at the Altar of our Lord.
The event was sponsored by Tasty Waves– a frozen yogurt shop, co-owned and operated by the Terry family; parishioners of St. Francis. Tasty Waves donated and transported all of the yogurt, toppings, containers, and spoons for this event. In addition, they provided free yogurt coupons for our Bingo prizes!!! Thank you, Tasty Waves, for your generosity.




The evening was great fun! All especially enjoyed the lighthearted quiz: “How well do you know your pastor”. Do you know what famous soft drink company Fr. Larry once worked for? The winner of this quiz was awarded the Canadian Maple leaf medal of honor, pictured in the photo above!!
All who participated devoured the “tasty” treats, laughed often, and generally got to know each other better.



A big thank you to all of our Master of Ceremonies, they did much to make the evening a success. Demonstrating their leadership abilities, they ran several of the games and helped out whenever they were needed.
Throughout the evening these MCs reached out to others with a friendly smile, an offer of a seat at table, and helping younger servers in the games. Living their faith by welcoming others in, as Christ calls us all to do. Well done!!
