After the Masses for Ascension Thursday on Wednesday evening and Thursday, parishioners at St. Francis and Holy Cross enjoyed time together in fellowship. Those at St Francis feasted on a delightful meal catered by Mama Mia’s in Interlaken and those at Holy Cross devoured delicious hors d’oeuvres. There was also a large crowd who stopped for coffee and home-made pastries after Mass at St. James the Apostle. ☺️ Thank you to the volunteers that made all this possible!
