Great Summer Bounty Festival!

On July 31st the Franciscan Friars, Third Order Regular (TOR), Province of the Immaculate Conception, and the volunteers helping with the Care for Creation Project (C4C) hosted a Summer Bounty Festival at beautiful St. Bernardine's Monastery in Hollidaysburg, PA. Blessed with perhaps the best day of summer (we had plenty of sun and cooler temps) the friars and C4C volunteers provided hospitality for well over a hundred persons from the area. The purpose of the Festival was to give thanks to God for the beauty and bounty of creation, promote awareness concerning the C4C project, and build community. This was the second year the Festival was held and we hope that it will become an annual event for years to come! Thanks to all our great C4C volunteers for helping to make the Festival such a success and thanks to the many friars who attended! Pat, TOR
