Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Community will kick off its Whole Community Catechesis program Oct. 14 with a Festival of Faith at St. Michael Church, 312 Liberty St. in Penn Yan.
Billed as a celebration of diversity and solidarity for the whole family, the evening will begin with a 5 p.m. liturgy in the church, followed by a simple supper in the church hall at 6:15 and entertainment at 7. At 7:30, Deacon Tom Driscoll will lead a conversation about immigration, solidarity and faith. Deacon Driscoll is the former director of community education at St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry.
Educational, fun and musical activities will be provided for the children while the adult discussion is taking place. Adults and children will come together at the end of the evening for closing prayer at 9 p.m.
