Christmasfest’s origins go back nearly to the founding of St Laurence.  A group of parishioners started making crafts to sell. This annual event, usually held the first Saturday in November, has grown into a warm and welcoming community affair.  The famous Christmasfest Café featuring breakfast burritos, cinnamon rolls,  and home-made soups is eagerly anticipated by the community.  The tradition of parishioners making crafts continues and in 2012, we invited local craft vendors to join us and also to sell their wares.  Proceeds from Christmasfest help support the operation of the Church and enable us to pursue our work in and for the community at large. The chairperson for Christmasfest 2018 is Emily Hastings. Please contact her for further
