Catholic Rural Life Festival, Farmington, ME, 13-14 September 2019

The Catholic Rural Life Festival is hosted by St. Joseph and St. Rose Parishes of Farmington and Jay, ME. From the CRL website:

A true festival combines the need for leisure as well as a sense of common participation in the community…
