The diocese’s Natural Family Planning Ministry hosted its annual Fall Family Fun Day Sept. 28. This free family event, which is supported by the HOPE Appeal, took place on a beautiful, sunny day at the North Star Orchards (bottom right) in the Eastern Region, Stoughton Farms in the Southern Region, and Our Farm (top right) in the Western Region of the diocese. Over 350 participants came out to pick apples, decorate pumpkins, adventure through corn mazes, and build Catholic community over apple cider and donuts.

The ministry’s next event will be a Family Advent Event on Saturday, Nov. 30. The day includes a Holy “Half” Hour of Adoration followed by food and crafts in all three regions. For more information, please email or check out the events calendar at
