St. Hedwig Catholic Church is pleased to announce Monsignor Quinn’s Annual Christmas Dinner for Those Alone on Christmas Day will return, in person, from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 25, 2021.

For more than 40 years, the Annual Christmas Day dinner has been held in Quinn Hall, serving a hot turkey dinner with all the trimmings donated by St. Hedwig parishioners. The event has grown from a few dozen to over 120 guests in annual attendance. While this year’s event will have limited capacity, the volunteers who put this event on are looking forward to spreading Christmas Cheer, especially with those isolated over the past 18 months.

“As the shepherds welcomed baby Jesus, we are excited to welcome and share in the joy of Christmas with those who might otherwise be alone this Holiday Season,” said Deacon Henry Eagar.

A limited number of dinner reservations are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. For more information, visit the church website at or contact the Parish office at 562-296-9000.
