“The Great Activity of Our Life is to Love.”

Yesterday marked what would have been the 113th birthday of our founder, Fr. Alfred Boeddeker.

Fr. Al taught us that “the great activity of our life is to love,” so our chefs poured their hearts into an extra special meal to honor his memory: 2,600 orders of grilled steak, salad, and garlic fries for our guests.
