web-DinnerWithTheSistersA drawing for prizes of up to $500 cash plus a silent auction will be part of this year’s annual Motherhouse Spaghetti Dinner, hosted by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia.

Tickets are now available for both the dinner, set for 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sunday, March 22, at the Nazareth Motherhouse, and the drawings.

Dinner tickets in advance are $8 for adults and $4 for children 5 to 12. (Children 4 and younger eat free.) They are available at the Motherhouse, 1300 Washington St; Neighbor to Neighbor, 103 E. Sixth St.; Manna House of Prayer, 323 E. Fifth St.; and the CSJ Administration Office, 215 Court St.

You may reserve dinner tickets and tickets to the drawings by calling Amanda Jeardoe at the Motherhouse, 243-2113, ext. 1223, or by e-mailing her at

Tickets at the door will be $10 for adults and $6 for children 5 to 12.

Ticket holders in the drawing decide which prize to try for. This year there are cash prizes of $500, $350 and $250, plus a Kansas State University football autographed by Coach Bill Snyder, a Kansas State University basketball autographed by Coach Bruce Weber, a five-burner CharBroil gas grill, two wrought iron park benches and a handmade quilt.

Winners will be drawn about 1:15 p.m., but you need not be present to win.

There will also be nearly a dozen smaller prizes in a silent auction, plus “grab bag” gifts for $1, $2 and $3.

One special display this year will explain the Year of Consecrated Life, which Pope Francis announced for 2015 with the theme “Wake Up the World!”

In 2014, nearly 600 people attended the event.

The Sisters of St. Joseph is a religious order of women who came to Kansas in 1883 and established the Nazareth Convent and Academy in Concordia a year later. There are about 130 Sisters in the congregation, serving missions across Kansas, plus others in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico and Texas, and in Brazil. About half the sisters live and serve in Concordia.
