News & Announcements

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 available at the LCC 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!
