This year, October 31st, was more than just Halloween. It was also the date of the Holy Name Society’s latest event – a buffet breakfast. Welcoming patrons at the door was a big bowl of candy and the smell of bacon, sausage, and pancakes.
The ambitious men of the Holy Name prepared a buffet that included fresh fruit, pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs, home fries, bacon, sausage, and the Boyko family recipe soufflé. If that was not enough, one could order an omelet made to your liking. Fresh rolls and home-made baked goods were there for the taking, if you still had room.
On this busy autumn morning, one-hundred-fifty participants were cooked for and served by fourteen Holy Name men. Though it was Halloween, it was really Saint Nicholas Day that the Holy Name members had in mind. The profit from this breakfast will fund their next big event – a Saint Nicholas celebration for parish children and their parents on Sunday, December 5th.
