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.
The parish picnic happens once a year on the fourth 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 piñata 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.
