SUPPORT WORKS OF MERCY - VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE PRIEST!

Some of our favorite priests are battling it out in a bake-off to support works of mercy in the diocese.  Each year the Heart of Mercy Endowment (HOME) fund spotlights a saint who exemplifies mercy.  In 2021, we are highlighting St. Elizabeth of Hungary, patron saint of bakers.  St. Elizabeth, while born into royalty, is known for choosing a simple life of prayer and service, often bringing bread to the poor.

 

Each priest will bake the same recipe of bread, along with a creative bake of their choice!

Bakes will be judged on taste, presentation, and creativity. Visit our Facebook page to follow along with the baking!

Give your favorite priest bonus points!  Each donation of $10 = 1 vote. ($20 = 2 votes, etc.)

Contestants are competing for $1,000 1st prize and $500 2nd prize towards a work of mercy of their choice.

May the best baker win!
