Thank you!

On Saturday June 2nd, St. Mary’s joined with the Knights of Columbus and the Columbiettes for a fund raising dinner for a member of our community who is in need. Elaine Pizzute-Ashare, the daughter of late Bill
Pizzute, is dealing with serious health issues and the recent death of her husband.

For so many years, Bill Pizzute was a fixture in our parish and in our community helping so many people along the way. Believing that charity begins at home, as a community we came together to help his daughter
who is now in need.

I thank the Knights of Columbus and the Columbiettes for the wonderful food and all the hard work that made the event such a success. I also thank Ed Ariola for donating his services as a DJ so that the evening was filled with wonderful music. I thank everyone else who helped to make the event a success. Mostly, I thank everyone who attended the dinner and all those were unable to attend but still made a contribution to this most worthy cause. It shows what can happen when we care for our neighbors.

Fundraiser for a Parish Family on June 2nd

Elaine Pizzute-Ashare, a life-long resident of Dumont is the daughter of the late William “Bill” Pizzute, himself a vibrant member of the Dumont community. Bill served as Borough tax collector, as an assistant at the Dumont Board of Education, and was a founder of the Dumont Good Neighbor Fund and was easily recognized jogging around town. He was also an active member of St. Mary’s serving as a Eucharistic Minister, CCD teacher and carnival volunteer.

Elaine was diagnosed with MS nine years ago and has been unable to work. Her husband of 23 years passed away early this year after a long illness. She is now a young widow with limited income, no health insurance and one son in college. Elaine needs our help.

There will be a fundraiser on Saturday June 2nd in St. Mary’s school hall to raise funds for the family. It is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus of St. John’s Council #1345, the Columbiettes of St. John’s Council and St. Mary’s Church.

Please join us to show your support for Elaine, a Dumont native who is in need and spread the word to your friends and neighbors. Details are on the flier which is also in the bulletin as well as at the doors of the church.
