Mary's/Holy Cross Dinner set for Feb. 9
Good news for all the loyal attendees of the annual Keuterville Holy Cross dinner! The 43rd annual parish dinner and prize drawing has been moved to Sunday, February 9th, taking place from 11 am to 4 pm at the Keuterville Hall.
Roast beef, ham, real mashed potatoes and gravy top the menu with green beans, fruit, tossed salad, and delicious homemade rolls; with assorted desserts rounding out the meal. Bingo games will be played all day on the stage, and the raffle drawing for 23 prizes will begin at 4 o’clock. You can buy a raffle ticket from any St. Mary’s/Holy Cross parishioner.
In 1997 Holy Cross became a chapel, taken care of by Cottonwood’s St. Mary’s residing priest. Today, the beautiful historic building is used for weddings, funerals and special occasions throughout the year. We have been very lucky the last years to have Sunday evening Mass at 7:00pm throughout the summer; starting Memorial Day and running through Labor Day.
Keuterville residents and other parishioners from across the Camas Prairie enjoy using the old church. No other church in the area has the ornate antique altars, made in Germany and shipped to Idaho, which carry you back to the era of our grandparents. Sitting in the pews gives you a sense of connecting to the past, when previous generations valued quality and craftsmanship.
Since Holy Cross is now a chapel, this annual fundraiser helps fund the maintenance of this treasured piece of history. With looking forward to spring making its way to our prairie, get out of the house Sunday, February 9 and take a drive to Keuterville. The scenery is fantastic, the food is homemade, and the friendly conversations can’t be beat. Hope to see you there!
