Catholic United Raffle - Ticket Sales Week 2

We hope everyone has been selling their tickets! Please remember you may turn in your tickets anytime you have sold them all! If you need more tickets - please contact Destinee Egan by emailing her.

Each, K-8 family is expected to sell at least 20 tickets. We are also asking Kinderstart families to try to sell 10 tickets. You can sell tickets to your neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family, and buy some for yourself! All the money raised stays at St. Al’s!! Plus, kids will earn an out of uniform pass for each book sold!

Tickets come in books of 10 and if you want extra books contact Destinee Egan at

Would you like to sell your tickets after Masses in the coming weekends? It is a FUN, FAST, and EASY way to sell all of your tickets! To sign up for Mass, contact Destinee Egan at
