HARVEST AND BAZAAR
Our target is to achieve our set goals through the proceeds of the 2021 Harvest and Bazaar. We are hoping that all parishioners and people of goodwill shall actively participate and contribute generously towards the success of our harvest and bazaar.
We encourage all to plant economic trees as we are doing in the parish as a preventive measure against hunger and climate
