Holy Spirit sausage festival set Sunday
By Jim Jarrett
Chris Mosser expects about 1,000 people to attend sixth annual Sausage Festival Sunday at Holy Spirit Catholic Church.
The festival, which features a raffle, children’s games, and silent, live and children’s auctions, is from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a prize drawing at 2 p.m.
Holy Spirit Catholic Church is at 9821 Frankford Ave.
Mosser , the co-chairman, said the event grew from about 300 to 400 in the first year to more than 800 attendees last spring.
“If we reach 1,000, we would’ve accomplished one of our goals,” said Mosier. “It’s a milestone.”
The festival, said Mosser , uses a German sausage recipe from parishioner Doug Marnell, “It is a special recipe passed down from his family,” said Mosser .
The sausage has become one of the more popular items at the Parish. About 600 pounds of Marnell’s sausage was pre-sold in frozen bulk orders in February, said Mosier.
Each plate at the festival has Marnell’s German sausage or grilled chicken, potatoes, green beans, sauerkraut and a dessert, said Marnell. It is $7 per plate for adults and $4 for children.
The parish fund helps with different ministries, such as outreach or church improvements.
“These funds are put into that and all things the parish offers,” said Mosser
