The 8th Annual Parish Festival “Christmas in September and Car Show” was greeted with warm and sunny weather on Friday, September 22nd through Sunday, September 24th. St. Michael's Center was filled with 22 vendors, over 124 theme baskets, a tempting dessert table with Holiday baked goods made by our parishioners, together with a Designer Purse Raffle. Home-made ethnic foods were offered during the entire weekend.
On Saturday afternoon, “Faith Ann Liuzzo's School of Performing Arts” entertained hundreds of people. On Sunday, the day began with the Divine Liturgy filled with many visitors, and the choir was under the direction of Oleg Beljaeff. Over 190 Classic Cars were registered to win Special Trophies, and in the afternoon the famous 8 piece Jeffrey James Band entertained the record crowd of over 1,900 people who had come to support our Parish Festival.
His Eminence, Archbishop Mark opened the Sunday program with a prayer, followed by the singing of "God Bless America" led by our cantor William Dubee.
We give thanks to everyone who supported our Parish Festival as we embraced the greater community with our open hearts and hospitality.
