Fr. Dan's Announcement regarding cancellation of Carnival... Split the Pot Raffle is STILL ON...
Back in March, In deciding to go ahead with plans for a Carnival this summer, Fr. Dan and the Carnival committee had anticipated that as Reopen RI moved from Phase II to Phase III, there would be a lessening of Dept. of Health regulations for hosting events open to the public. In fact, this was not the case. New regulations, which we only received earlier this month, required a written plan to be summitted and approved. Compliance with these regulations would have required a) additional expenditures, which would have cut into the already limited expectation for profit. And b) there would have been a need for additional volunteers for sanitization and crowd control. As you know many of our faithful and hardworking volunteers are not able to help this year as they are in high-risk group because of age and pre-existing health conditions.
We decided to cancel the Carnival for this year as we are unable to safely comply with the requirements of the state.
Thank you to all who have put so much time and effort in planning this year’s Carnival events. I know this decision is disappointing, but please know that your efforts are greatly appreciated.
The cancellation of this makes our Giant Split the Pot Raffle all that more important as a fundraiser for our parish.
Thank you to all who support our parish in any way.
