The Ladies Auxiliary annual "Taste of St. Francis". The parish-wide event will feature a food tasting contest. The food tasting contest will offer several categories to choose from, so we hope to draw as many entries as possible from our culturally diverse Parish. Individuals, families and ministries are invited to participate with food entries or as volunteers at the event.

There is NO CHARGE to enter a dish in the event. The cost to enter to eat & vote for your favorite dish is $5.00 per person or $20.00 per family (immediate family).
