My Town: Wild Blue Frozen Yogurt to host Lenten season fundraisers for parish

GRAND HAVEN, Mich.―Anyone wishing to feast before they fast in observance of the start of the Lenten season is encouraged to attend two fundraisers at Wild Blue Frozen Yogurt, at 1125 S. Beacon in Grand Haven to help benefit St. Patrick-St. Anthony Parish.  Funds raised will support the parish’s capital stewardship campaign.

Wild Blue Frozen Yogurt will give back 15 percent of its sales to the parish on Monday, Feb. 16 and Fat Tuesday, Feb. 17 from these fundraisers, held from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on both dates.  The general public is invited to attend.

Jim and Chris Wadaga, owners of Wild Blue Frozen Yogurt and parishioners at St. Patrick-St. Anthony  hosted one fundraising event in December and plan to host more throughout 2015 to support the parish’s capital campaign.

“We believe in giving back to the community and these fundraisers will help enhance the capacity for parishioners to worship, grow in faith and gather as a parish family,” said Jim Wadaga. 

St. Patrick-St. Anthony Parish’s capital campaign was launched in October 2014.  Plans include renovations to the existing church, a new entry and gathering space, a connecting walkway to a new Pastoral Services building, and installation of a new sound system, among other upgrades.  By constructing a new Pastoral Services building, parish leaders hope to provide additional meeting rooms, put all staff and volunteers into one location and create an energy-efficient facility.

Anyone interested in obtaining additional information should contact St. Patrick-St. Anthony Parish at  616/842-0001. Information is also available on the parish website, www.stpatsgh.org

St. Patrick Parish began as a mission site in 1857 and the first church was built at the current location of 920 Fulton Street in Grand Haven in 1872.  In 1911, St. Anthony’s Church was formed in Robinson Township and became a mission parish of St. Patrick’s.  The current church was opened in 1957 after the old church was torn down to make room for Route 31.  The Family Center was added in 1973 and in 2012, both parishes merged into the St. Patrick - St. Anthony Parish.  Masses are held Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 8 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. weekly.  Everyone is welcome.
