60-5 Club – This group was started by Fr. Fred Julien, M.S. many years ago as he felt a need for the seniors of St. Patrick Church to have a place to mingle with good fellowship.  He opened up his home to them for a meal the first Sunday of each month.  Fr. Julien provided the meat for the meal and the seniors brought potluck dishes to share.  The seniors were happy and enjoyed the fellowship.  Somewhere along the way, the date and meeting place was changed.  We now meet the last Tuesday of the month in the Faith Formation building at noon.  Everyone brings a potluck dish to share.  Anyone over the age of 55, man or woman, are invited to join us for the food and fellowship.  We play bingo after the meal.  Contact person is Jeraldine Molandes (936) 632-3661
