What better way to start off your Sunday than with Mass.  Join us at 11:00 a.m. in the church.

French Market

Similar to some European markets, this charming open-air market features shopping, dining, music and local tradition that is uniquely French-Canadian.  Here you will find a vast array of vintage, antiques, hand-made artisian wares, primitives, garden related items, delicious treats, jewelry, iron work, and many more treasures.  This French Market will be on the school grounds starting at 10:00 a.m. and will close at 4:00 p.m.

French-Canadian Cuisine

A variety of authentic French-Canadian foods will be available for dinner in the gym.  In addition, an array of vendors will be selling food at the outdoor French Market.  Food will be served starting after Mass (at Noon) until 4:00 p.m.

French pastries handmade by the Sisters from the St. Roger Abbey Gourmet Patisserie

These French speaking Sisters of Fraternite Notre Dame will be selling a variety of organic hand-made French pastries.  The Sisters sell their pastries for the central benefit of serving the homeless.  The Sisters operate a soup kitchen, providing lunch to the homeless everyday!
