Linny Tharappel greets Holy Trinity parishioners as they arrive to celebrate Mass for the eighth annual International Festival. The festival and Mass are held the Saturday before Mothers Day every year.


Father Dave Gutmann, pastor of Holy Trinity Church, said the parish's recent International Festival was “amazing.”

“Well done to our incredible events planning ministry,” he said. “A tremendous amount of work goes into all the planning for this huge event, and it showed.”

Enthusiasm was high and it was obvious that everyone was thoroughly enjoying themselves, Father Gutmann said, at Mass, at the dinner, and during the entertainment.

The only casualties were the three pigs who were part of the feast.
