Council 1266 Desert Meal

Monroe’s Council #1266 hosted its annual Desert Meal to help fund the trip to the Holy Land for the Seminarians from Detroit Sacred Heart Seminary. The Council provided $20,000 to help offset the expenses of the 19 Seminarians who were attending this year.

The trip allows the Seminarians to walk in the footsteps of Christ and grow in their faith as they continue their journey to the priesthood.

The Council was able to bring together over 225 members of the community from 11 different parishes along with local clergy. They enjoyed a delicious meal, raffles, and presentation from 3 of the seminarians who were participating in the trip. It was a fruitful night and they look forward to next year’s event.

Thank you to DGK Dr. Jeff Couturier, his wife Jenni and the rest of the Desert Meal team.  Fantastic job!!!
