Open/Close Menu A Legacy of Faith and Learning

You are invited to the third annual Lenten Fish Dinner supporting the Dominican Sisters of Tacoma on March 23, 2018 starting at  4:30 P.M. in the Church Hall of Saint Patrick Catholic Church.

The  Lenten Fish Dinner supporting the Dominican Sisters of Tacoma wraps the three Lenten Pillars— Prayer, Almsgiving and Fasting— all in one event as the end of the season of Lent approached. Over 200 people attended the benefit on March 18, 2016 and again in 2017.

Honoring a Legacy of Faith and Learning

Sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Tacoma Council 809, the event honors the Dominican Sisters legacy of faith and learning. All proceeds benefit the Dominican Sisters of Tacoma. Your thoughtful contribution to their continued care and support is welcomed and appreciated. Did you know that the Dominican Sisters were instrumental in the opening of Saint Patrick Catholic School?

The Dominican Sisters Establish a School

In May 1893 the Dominican Sisters arrived in Tacoma to establish a school for Saint Patrick Catholic Church.  It was to be the first official parochial school west of the Mississippi River. The Tacoma Dominican Sisters began Saint Patrick Catholic School on September 8, 1893. Today, the parish school has maintained the original mission of the Dominican Sisters; to provide a quality Catholic education and nourish the faith life of our students.
The Dominican Sisters have a long history of contributions to the Saint Patrick Catholic Church and School community. Come celebrate the 125th Anniversary of Saint Patrick Catholic School, meet these amazing women of faith, and honor them with financial gifts that will directly benefit the women that first formed Saint Patrick Catholic School.
Net proceeds benefit the Tacoma Dominican Sisters. Our collective goal is to raise $5,000 in their honor – join us!

Let’s Pray Together

After food, fellowship and supporting the Dominican Sisters, join the faithful at Stations of the Cross in the Church starting at 7:00 P.M.
