We will be serving breakfast after the 7, 9 AND 11 AM Mass times. We are estimating four times our normal number of diners, probably close to 400. This means we need “lots” of help. Setting up starting at 6:30 AM, Cooking and Serving, and then Cleanup somewhere around 1 PM. Several of your brothers who usually help are not available this weekend so we need all the help possible!
