On Sunday, August 14, the linked parishes of Saint John Neumann and Saint Paul of the Cross will join together for a summer fundraiser called the 2022 Unity Festival. The event will take place at Waldorf Park (East Mountain) from 2 – 8 p.m. Everyone is invited to gather for some truly joyful summer fun as the ONE COMMUNITY of friendship and faith that exists throughout South Scranton and East Mountain!
A delicious buffet will feature Spanish, Irish, German, Polish and Italian foods. There will be lively and energizing music throughout the entire event to draw all to the dance floor with music reflecting all our cultural traditions. There will also be face painting, cornhole contests, volleyball and other activities for kids. There will be a bake sale and a basket raffle along with other fun activities to help everyone enjoy the day.
Advance tickets are $20 (up until August 10 when the price increases to $25) and $10 for children (12 and under). Your ticket covers the full buffet and ordinary beverages (soda, water and beer). A cash bar will be available. To purchase tickets, please contact either parish.
