In celebrating the feast day of the parish’s patron saint, they continued a tradition that showcases its diversity — and draws families together for a smorgasbord of culinary delights.
Even a mariachi band that included parishioners performed for the occasion, much to the delight of diners.
Chef Tom Rosenberger, a parishioner, organizes the event. He uses the Parish Center as his staging area for food prep and serving.
The event is so popular that it draws nearly 1,000 parishioners — and all in celebration of their patron saint and vibrant parish community.
“The parish pays for all the food and we charge a nominal fee to attend,” says Anita Taylor, business manager, “but it’s not a fundraiser. It’s a celebration that gathers the whole parish.”
