St. Patrick’s wanted to the event to be interactive for church members

“This is people off all ages,” said Kris Harper, Director of Faith Formation. “This is called Generation of Faith, and it encompasses very young people, but also people who are more mature.”

This was the church’s first time doing the rosary balloon release.
