The Fall Festival is a major fellowship event that takes place on the All Saints Church campus each year. The Festival is a family-friendly, two-day event with great food, beverages, live entertainment, Bingo, silent auction and carnival games with prizes for children of all ages. The volunteer committee is made up of approximately 30 to 40 individuals who meet regularly during the year to plan, prepare, as well as execute the event. Planning begins in February. Meetings are held once a month when possible. During August and September, we will usually meet twice a month as we get closer to the festival.
As seniors, we gather in fellowship and gratitude for God’s gifts and graces to: renew our spirit and relationships by sharing a meal and entertainment; rejuvenate our Catholic faith; refresh our health. Our hope is to provide each of our members the opportunity to join with one another, share stories, and convey the essence of who God is and what it means to know Him. We typically meet monthly from January to June and September to December. Reservations are required.
