Mary Queen Of Heaven Festival Is A Winner!

People flocked to the Grand Midway at Mary Queen of Heaven school yard last weekend. If you're going to stage a festival - or any special event - Father Jamie Gigantiello, pastor of Mary Queen of Heaven Church, would be the man to see. A perfect example of his expertise could be seen when his church featured its annual Church Festival from June 14 to 18. Featuring everything from food, games and rides to a giant casino, the event went like clockwork. Sure, there was just a little rain, but that made it all the better when people returned after the shower.

All-in-all, it turned out to be a great success, with everyone asking Father Jamie to engineer the project again next year.
