Time to Reach Out
It's been that time of year again, time to reach out to the community. And we did on Sept 14th. Each year we host a neighborhood barbecue with some fun for the kids thrown in for good measure. This year we had plenteous chicken cooked to perfection thanks to Fr. Dan and Nick Cosi, as well as burgers and hot dogs. The Castle bounce was a hit again and the kids never left. They just bounced all day! We also had games and balloons and other fun prizes for the kids. In attendance were some of our own parishioners, who also brought friends, as well as folks and kids from the neighborhood. It was a blessed and fun event. Well worth the work!
And each year we participate in the Ansonia Harvest Festival with our Fried Dough stand. We used three whole spaces for food prep, selling and dining. We prayed for people, shared the gospel and played music - the Kate Miz band, with our own Fr. Matt on drums, played music for over an hour. Most of the music was original Christian music written by Kate Miserocchi. We had a few fans who showed up just to enjoy the music. It was a great time and we look forward to doing it again next year.
