Father Patrick enjoying Christmas cheer.

Father Patrick Nwokoye is no stranger to travel. The SEMO University Newman Center priest pilgrimages each year to various holy cities around the globe and with each trip takes a fortunate few of the Cape Girardeau faithful along.

How would YOU like a chance to join him?!?

This year, St Mary Cathedral School will host its 21st annual Dinner Auction, to be held February 20, 2010, at Ray's Conference Center.
