Cinco de Mayo Fiesta
St Edward’s Catholic Church of Clifton Park Hispanic Apostolate and the Knights of Columbus Council 11064 are working together to hold a Cinco De Mayo Fiesta after the 4pm Mass on Saturday the 5th of May.
This Mass will be a joint Spanish-English celebration and will be preceded by a procession to introduce the Madonna and Christ child statue from the old church into the new church. The Knights of Columbus color guard will participate. Grade school aged children are encouraged to join in the procession. The procession service will start at 3:30 pm at the existing statue of the Virgin Mary located outside on the west side of the new church and proceed into the new church.
The Fiesta will begin after the 4 pm Mass and will have games for the kids, an authentic Latin meal, and traditional music and dancing. All proceeds raised will be donated to Immigration Services of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany.
Meal tickets will be available after Mass on the day of the event and will be $10 per adult, $7 per child (6 to 15), and free for children 5 years and younger.
The Fiesta is an opportunity to socialize, have fun and broaden our understandings while enriching our faith and community.
