Cleveland Catholic Fest
August 5, 2007

Thousands of people flocked to the Center for Pastoral Leadership on Euclid Avenue in Willoughby on Sunday August 5th to participate in the 7th Annual "Fest".

The Fest is a remarkable gathering of Catholics coming together with family and friends. It is a one day free event.

Many nationalities had booths and put on demonstrations of their ethnic dancing and folklore. Irish Dancers, Austrian dancers, Polish dancers and Hispanic dancers were among the many groups participating. The Pipes and Drum of the East Side Irish American Club also played.

There was an impressive line up of Christian entertainers including international recording star, Michael W. Smith who premiered a new song, O Happy Day. Smith is off now to concerts in Nashville, Indiana, Oklahoma and even the Netherlands.

Also performing was Superchick, Praise-Appella and Leeland, among others.

Most area Catholic high schools had booths discussing what their schools have to offer. John Carroll University not only had a booth, but was a sponsor as well.

Representatives from many orders of priests, brothers and sisters were on hand to discuss vocations.

It was truly inspiring to see the tens of thousands of people coming together - even the on-again-off-again storms couldn't keep them away.

The day ended with a Mass celebrated by Bishop Lennon which was followed by fireworks!

If you have never been to The Fest, plan on attending next year, it is not to be missed.
