YOUNG AT HEART FESTIVAL FOR ACTIVE SENIORS…will be celebrated on August 10, 2010.

SNP started this festival sixteen years ago when we realized how very different seniors are today than in past generations.  With better health and longer lives, seniors are an important factor in the collective soul of a community.  This year we have an extensive line-up of entertainment and more than 50 health, business and community organization exhibitors taking part in the festival. This year's event will be held at the Aladdin Shrine Center, 3850 Stelzer Rd., near Easton Town Center, from

9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free. For more information about the Young at Heart Festival contact Young at Heart Festival Director Brian Wesolowski at (614) 410-0246.




Another year of RCIA will begin with a cookout on the rectory patio on Tuesday, Sept. 7th at 6:30 p.m. If you know anyone that is interested in learning about the Catholic faith; has been away from the church; has not been confirmed; or if you would like to be a sponsor for someone this year, then the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is for you. RCIA sessions will be held each Tuesday evening starting at 7:00 p.m.  Attending the classes does not obligate you to entering the Church at Easter. Watch the bulletin for further updates.
