The Harvest Festival met our expectations for a day of fun and camaraderie! Parishioners and visitors alike gathered on Sat., Nov. 1 to enjoy an array of activities. Here are some highlights:
- The Parish Hall was transformed into the Archangel Café, featuring Brett Brown’s award-winning barbecue.
- The bake sale, hosted by the Rebecca Guild, filled several tables with delectable treats.
- Malarkey, an Irish fiddle band, provided musical entertainment.
- Parishioner and author Evelyn Bence autographed copies of her new book, “Room at My Table.”
- The “white porcupine,” jewelry, and crafts sales attracted bargain seekers and early holiday shoppers.
- Activities for children featured the ever-popular cupcake walk.
The Harvest Festival also benefited the parish materially: based on preliminary figures, we will see a profit of about $3,500. This is a tangible sign of what we can accomplish when we harness our collective time, talent, and treasure. Our community is stronger for it.
