The Festival includes games for adults and children, free entertainment, lots of food, drink and fun. This event requires many workers and is a great opportunity to get to know other members of the parish. To volunteer or for more information, call the parish office, 614-267-9241.
Lenten Fish Fry
Mark your calendars for the Fridays of Lent (except Good Friday) and plan to attend our parish Fish Fry held in Marian Hall, 5-7:30 p.m. Our Fish Fry is open to the public but is a special time for our parish and community to gather for food and fellowship. The meal is great, the price is right and it’s lots of fun. It takes many helping hands to present this special event. If you would like to help with the “best fish fry in town.” For more information, contact John Bruzzese via 614-284.9226.
