MaryFair goes MOD-a Palm Springs Paradise


Welcome to MaryFair 2022! We are thrilled to reunite our parish and school community for our biggest community celebration and fundraiser. Please save the dates of Saturday, October 1st and 2nd for our Dinner & Auction and the free All-Parish Picnic.

MaryFair benefits our school and parish in a number of ways. To name a few, it builds our Education Trust Fund and scholarships, allows for facility updates and special projects, and technology upgrades. Most important benefit of this event is celebrating our great community and growing friendships. There are many ways to get involved in our 14th annual MaryFair weekend!
