NORTHBRIDGE, Mass. – “We were blessed with this weather,’’ said the Rev. Michael Broderick Saturday, Sept. 17 as he chatted with parishioners and visitors at the annual fall festival of St. Patrick’s Church.


Parish grounds, across the street from the church on Cross Street, had a festive atmosphere. Children carried balloons of varying colors, and proudly showed off their painted faces and sparkling tattoos available at the Kid’s Corner. They received small gifts for participating in games of skill, and could bounce the day away in a bouncing house.


Adults were free to browse through the Silent Auction tent, purchase hand-made items being sold throughout the festival grounds, or check out the yard sale tent. By noon, the air was permeated with the mouth-watering odor of food being cooked on the grill.
