Halloween fun around the Diocese

MERIDIAN – The Youth and Young Adults groups at St. Patrick/St. Joseph hosted the 2nd Annual Halloween Carnival on Oct. 22. The event had great community participation. The Hispanic group provided concessions and were able to take the profit that will be used towards expenses for this year’s Our Lady of Guadalupe activities. The school children and teachers helped with games and the profit from the games will help the school with any projects they have in the works. The Youth and Young Adults also put together a Haunted House in the old convent and profits will go towards event registrations and other activities. (Photos by Angela Dove)
