2020 Parish Slovak Festival is Cancelled

Dear Parishioners, Friends, and Visitor,

It is with regret that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Parish Slovak Festival, originally scheduled for August 21-23, 2020. During the unprecedented circumstances this spring and summer of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Festival Committee has been working hard in an effort and with hope that the festival could take place in some form.

However, given the uncertainties and unknowns of the weeks to come, the difficult decision was made to cancel the festival. The parish’s annual festival is a special time for all of us to come together, socialize, celebrate the parish’s Slovak heritage, and raise funds for the parish. With heartfelt gratitude, we thank the enthusiastic festivalgoers and dedicated volunteers who have made this festival a success in past years.

The Parish Festival Raffle will still take place. Please see the bulletin and parish website (see below) for raffle details. May God bless you and keep you safe in His care as we all look forward to the 2021 Festival.

Father Libor Marek, Pastor and the Festival Committee
