The Festival tonight will not open officially as in past nights. However, since the rain will eventually stop and since the students have already amassed with food alike, we invite anyone to join us for an unofficial festival night. Admissions will be donation only and there will be all the good food and drinks for purchase.
This way the Kentucky girls will still be able to bring us their entertainment, as well as any of the planned (or unplanned?) acts for the night, should they be able and willing – but certainly they ought not to feel obliged. We are going to immediately explore the possibility of a postponing for next Sunday and we will communicate that as soon as possible.
For this evening then, starting around 6 or whenever the rain has definitively stopped, feel free to come join us in some fall fest!
Last note: there will be mud, but it doesn’t seem too bad; bring your wellies and park at your risk.
In The Immaculata,
Fr. Jonathan Kopec
