This is a fundraising event hosted by St. Dismas Catholic Church, Waukegan IL to expand our outreach ministry, to not only our parish, but also our neighborhood and larger community.
This country themed event is sponsored by The Gold Pyramid House, Wadsworth IL, featuring country music provided by Smokin Gunz, line dance instructions given by Dan Pye, Country BBQ Buffet and cash bar. The Gold Pyramid will also provide tours of the Pyramid House, museum, tomb replica and the gift shop will be open.
Why should you sponsor?
Although not a large parish, we have begun to grow due to our religious education program. As a result, we have added a number of families who require supplemental assistance.
Our Outreach Ministry currently provides backpacks for children filled with supplies for the school year; Christmas gifts for residents of Lake Park and Terrace Nursing Homes; food for SEDOL (Special Education District of Lake County); and financial assistance to Eldercare and Aid toWomen of Northern Lake County.
To help us continue this work and try to reach out to others, we have established this new fundraiser. We would be grateful if you would consider sponsoring us in this venture.
St. Dismas Parish was founded in the northwest corner of Waukegan in 1963 by Rev. Patrick Hunter, and named after the good thief crucified with Christ. Although the physical plant is small and compact, the parishioners are big- hearted, friendly, and welcoming. Our parishioners come from many different areas, and find here a place of faith and prayer, hospitality and service. We are a multi-cultural parish that is concerned to recognize and celebrate our diversity. We welcome all, and will do everything we can to insure that everyone finds a home at St. Dismas.
