Housewarming at SKD

Thinking of a last minute housewarming gift? Consider a gift card to Crate and Barrel, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Amazon, or  Menards. This gives Fr. Bob the opportunity to get any last minute items that he didn’t know he needs until he’s moved and settled in. Thank you all so much for your generosity, we can’t wait to celebrate this great accomplishment together!
