Rain or Shine! Indoor & Outdoor Facilities

This is the major social, service and fundraising event of the year. This annual event began in 2005, just after the construction of the pavilion. HF is generally held the first Friday and Saturday in October and includes many homemade foods and desserts, rides and games for adults and children, raffles, entertainment and even a Polka Mass. The event takes place rain or shine and includes both indoor and outdoor activities (all indoors in inclement weather).

This event includes countless volunteer hours and many generous donation from our parishioners and the community. A portion of the profit is shared in charity with area non-profit groups.

HF 2017 is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, October 6 and 7. Friday times are 4 – 9 PM and Saturday 12 – 9 PM. Entertainment this year on Saturday to include Polka Tones (1-4 PM); Polka Mass 4:30 PM; Flamin’ Dick and the Hot Rods Oldies from 5:30 – 8:30 PM.
