Forest Hills Street Fair 2015

Austin Street Fair: October 4, 2015

The street fair is a popular Sunday afternoon fall event in Forest Hills. The parish had volunteers and staff from Religious Ed manning a table and doing outreach to the community. We were also still riding the wave of enthusiasm after Pope Francis’ visit to our city. Just a few blocks away at the church steps, there was another crowd at the blessing of the animals.
