News & Announcements

The November Daily Number Drawing is coming!! Tickets available at the council!

Please support our Home Corporation, the Lackawanna Catholic Club (LCC). The LCC owns the building that we call "home."  It is where Fr. Baker Council #2243 holds its monthly meetings, hosts bingo, sponsors fundraising activities, and hall rentals for many types of functions. It takes a lot of money to keep the building open in order to have a place to call "home." 

Raffle tickets are $5 each and are available from our bartenders at the lounge. 


BINGO is played every Wednesday at the council hall beginning at 12:45 PM!

Volunteer council members are always needed. No prior bingo experience necessary, just a willingness to help!
