Please join the Holy Rosary Dominican Friars this Sunday, February 8, for a fantastic wine tasting at 6pm in the Parish Hall. It’s hard to believe that it is our 7th tasting, and each year it gets better. The support we’ve received from Laura and George Pontikes has been incredibly gracious and, we, Dominican Friars, are very grateful.
All proceeds go to the formation program of young Dominican Friars studying for the priesthood who will eventually come to Holy Rosary as ministers of the Gospel and the sacraments. Your participation is crucial, only with your support can we continue to educate these young men to be preachers of God’s Word. You will also contribute to our Dominican Friars who are infirm and are in need of constant medical care.
By coming to the event or sending a donation you become partners in our mission of spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ in a society that desperately needs it. We remember our benefactors in our daily prayers, in our Mass intentions, and also assure you that our Dominican presence at Holy Rosary will continue for many years to come.
Head Sommelier Steven McDonald, from Pappas Bros. Steak House, will select and explain exquisite wines from the Pontikes’ Family magnificent cellar and Chef Frank Triola is preparing wonderful hors d’oeuvres and a great dinner buffet. Our deepest thanks to Chef Bryan Caswell, from Reef Restaurant, for donating Riedel tasting glasses that guests will take home as a souvenir. Chef Patrick McCray and sommelier Thomas Moësse, from divino Italian Restaurant, are selecting a few wines to auction during the evening. Last but not least, Mr. Filip Blachnio, finishing his PhD in piano performance at Rice University, will serenade us as we gather to share choice wines, great food, and fellowship.
Come and celebrate with the Dominican Friars. May God continue to bless you with generous hearts.
In St. Dominic, Preacher of Grace,
—fr. Juan M. Torres, O.P.
