A Message from the SCC President...

Dear Friends of the Slovenian Catholic Center,

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone that continues to support the SCC!!

Thanks to the past generosity of our members, we are very fortunate to be able to continue to cover building and maintenance expenses during and now, post pandemic. We are hoping that you, our members and friends, will continue to support the Center. The proceeds from the picnic and raffle  helped us close that revenue gap that COVID left us with! Please continue to visit us for our Sunday Fellowship Luncheons, Monthly Dinners and other special events we host.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our Dom and upcoming events. Stay tuned!!
