Serving those who serve at Blessed Francis Seelos Academy

Friday, October 25, 2019 | 12:24 PM


Members of the Blessed Francis Seelos Academy service club, the Seelos Samaritans, hosted a dinner for Wexford area First Responders on Tuesday, Oct. 22.

The meal included a salad, pasta with homemade meat sauce, rolls, beverage and dessert.  The students in grades four through eight covered and set the tables, greeted the guests at the door, served the meal and cleaned up afterwards. The younger members of the group designed placemats and painted prayer rocks for all that attended.  Father Joseph Freedy, Parochial Vicar of the Catholic Community of Wexford blessed the meal and attendees.

The students enjoyed serving, interacting and interviewing the nearly 40 diners that represented Wexford and Marshall volunteer fire departments and the Northern Regional Police Department.  The diners also seemed to enjoy the event.  Northern Regional Police Department Captian John Silcia wrote: “We cannot thank you, the staff and most importantly the kiddos enough for dinner last night. All of the officers were overwhelmed with the thoughtfulness shown to them.  We brought placemats back to hang in the station as a reminder of why we do what we do and the importance of public relations.”
