What an event! On Monday, we celebrated the 10th Annual Friends of St. Theresa School (FOSTS) Golf Tournament at Belmont Country Club. The weather was perfect, the golf was outstanding, and the silent auction and dinner provided a fun way for our parish and school community to gather together - Covid style - to raise funds for tuition assistance. Thank you to all golfers, sponsors, donors, and volunteers for making the event such a success – we are truly grateful for your support! MARK YOUR CALENDARS for next year's tournament: Monday, Oct. 4. 2021!
