Bishop Earl Boyea seeks to further “equip the Household of Faith” to become disciples of Christ so that, in His friendship, they can reach out and evangelize the wider community. To this goal, FaithFest17 offers families a day of live music, social and recreational activities, food, fireworks and fun -- all centered on a vigil Mass held “under the stars.”
