World Feast 2017

October 13th & 14th

Planning is underway for our Fourth Annual World Feast, commemorating the vast cultural diversity of our parish. Each year the feast is held on the Saturday following the final Fatima Procession. 2017 is the Centennial of the Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, and we have big plans to make this an even bigger event than in years past, while still including all the food, drinks, games, entertainment, cultural displays and devotions, and sacred music as always. Are you a well organized individual who loves to help plan parties and events? We are in need of a few enthusiastic parishioners to help on our planning committee. Attendance at weekly meetings and full participation at World Feast is requested. If you are able to dedicate your time in making this year’s Feast a success, e-mail church@stacharlotte.com or volunteers@stacharlotte.com
