The meal includes sausage, glazed apples, biscuits, spicy sausage gravy, green beans, “ramen” coleslaw and lemon bars. Those attending have the option of dining in or curb-side takeout. Tickets are $8.

Josh McCallister, director of discipleship, said proceeds of the meal will go toward the church’s outreach ministry.

Cub Scouts to get Catholic emblem
The Light of Christ emblem will be presented to Cub Scouts Daniel Quiror and Steven Cade Haynes at the 8:30 a.m. mass, Sunday at Sacred Hearth Catholic Church.

The Light of Christ program brings Catholic religion into the Boy Scout program and is meant for Tiger and Wolf Cub Scouts of the Catholic faith in first and second grades. The purpose of the program is to help the scout develop a personal relationship with Jesus and reflects on the first part of the Scout oath “Duty to God” and the 12th point of the Scout law, “A scout is reverend.” It is one of five religious emblems available for Catholic youth.

Any Scout, Cub, Venturer or leader of any religion is invited to attend. Information: 762-9679.
