Please Join us for the 2nd Annual Patronal Feast Celebration Dinner – February 11, 2012

Dear Patrons of the Adam Cardinal Maida Alumni Library & Friends of the Community –

I’m sure it is no coincidence that our patronal feast takes place on February 14th.  The love on the shores of this campus can be quite palpable at times, and the love for SS. Cyril & Methodius is one of those times.  They are known as evangelizers, educators and heralded for their love of culture and literature.  These are virtues that we hope to bestow upon all the men that come to the shores of Orchard Lake.

We hope that you can join us, along with the sons of SS. Cyril & Methodius, in this joyous event.  We’d love to share our future as well as our history with you.  The link below provides all the details to a wonderful evening.  Blessings!
