If you are unable to sell or purchase your tickets, please return them to the office. The HSA appreciates your efforts! We can’t wait to see who wins these amazing prizes!

If you are interested in selling more tickets, you could help us selling tickets after all masses this weekend! Please sign up at:

The main parking on Friday will be interesting ~ be prepared. The main parking lot will be blocked off to allow the 3 on 3 volunteers to set up courts and tents.

  • Drop off will not change, but parking will!  Please drive through and drop off if possible.  If you wish to park and walk in, please park closer to the front of the lot near the church.
  • Pick up might change slightly, but we still plan to pick up in the same locations.  Please watch for a slight re-routing of cars (much like with Fun Fest preparations).

Thank you for making this community building event a success!
