“Inside” Trunk or Treat!

Our third annual Trunk or Treat experience will be on Wednesday, October 30, from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. This safe and fun activity is for the whole family. Children may be dressed in their Halloween costumes or not and go from table to table in the parish hall (many may be decorated) to go “trick or treating.” CTK members will  host this event and provide the treats. Babies in strollers and grandparents are also welcome! We will end our Trunk or Treat festivities with a blessing service at 6:45 p.m. to bless the trick or treaters. Pizza will also be provided at that time. Volunteers and/or questions.
We hope to see you there!
