Hand-in-Hand Festival

The Hand-in-Hand Festival is a day of fun and sharing for people with disabilities and those without. It usually occurs on a Sunday in June. The goal of the festival is to break down the barriers that separate people with different needs. The festival, first held in 1978, is filled with games, prizes, clowns, arts and crafts and food. Everything (including lunch) is free at the festival. Fair goers and volunteers are welcome at this annual event.

Parish Picnic

The parish picnic happens once a year on a Sunday of August. Parishioners from the 9:30 a.m. Mass and the Hispanic Mass come together for a Bilingual Eucharistic celebration at 10:30 AM. The picnic is held on the parish grounds. The afternoon includes games and a piƱata and a bouncy house for the children, and good company and conversation and community building.

Sunday Coffee and Refreshments

A welcoming cup of coffee, tea or juice and a sweet roll or fruit are offered by this committee following the 9:30 a.m. mass. Rotating teams of volunteers set up the tables and chairs, prepare drinks and food, prepare food for the sharing tables before Eucharist; then serve and clean up after the coffee hour.
