The Church of Saint Mary will host the Parish Gala on Saturday, October 30, 2021, celebrating our community in communion with our Lord Jesus Christ. The event will take place at Plandome Country Club with cocktails at 6:30 PM followed by dinner and dancing at 8:00 PM.

This year’s event will honor Carol and Brian Dunning and celebrate Rev. Fr. Dominik Wegiel and Rev. Fr. Jiha Lim.

Carol and Brian Dunning have been a part of The Church and Schools of St. Mary for many years. They have three children, Megan, Colin, and Eamon, who went to both our Elementary School and High School. Carol has served for several years as a Eucharistic Minister, both at the church and the Bristal Assisted Living. She is a past President of the High School Advisory Board, she served on the High School Gaels Parents’ Association Leadership Committee for ten years, and she was a member of the Elementary School Board. She is also a member of the Rosary Society and volunteers her time with the RCIA program. Brian has served for several years as a lector and is a member of the parish Pastoral Council and Pastor’s Strategic Advisory Committee.

The Gala celebrates and gives gratitude for the blessing of Rev. Fr. Dominik Wegiel, Parochial Vicar, and Rev. Fr. Jiha Lim, past Parochial Vicar, for their service to our parish community and schools.
