St. Gerard Pumpkin Fest - Saturday, October 7, 2017

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin... God lifts you up, takes you in, and  washes all the dirt off of you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff -- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for the entire world to see.             Author unknown.

Schedule of Events: (In case of rain, events will be held indoors.)
