Were you at this festival? St. Aedan Parish (in McGinley Square area of Jersey City) holds an annual festival where there are rides, music, food, raffles, and other activities. This year, the event started on September 18, 2008 and lasted for four days (September 21).
Along with other nationalities, different Filipino groups volunteered for the event. Like last year and the year before that, my friend Elmer Karaan was in-charge of the music. Couple for Christ members watched some booths one night, and the Buensuceso Family were all around.
Fr. Joe Astarita – the Parish Administrator – was happy with the turnout of the event. And based on the figure that he mentioned during one of his masses, this event will continue for next year.
