stjude2The turnout was even better than expected when St. Jude Parish in Derby held its third annual Labor Day Festival. Father Grzegorz (Gregory) Jaworowski, who was appointed administrator of the parish in January, said he was pleasantly surprised at the festival’s success, especially after bad weather had been predicted. “Often I noticed three generations laughing and taking in the pleasures of day,” he said. “The comments from the festival attendees were so positive that I believe we are well on our way to being alive again.” Father Jaworowski credited the many volunteers who worked on the festival, particularly parishioner Kathy Nyiry.
