A tradition at the annual Tri-State Fair is a booth operated by Catholics in the Diocese of Amarillo, answering questions about the Faith and offering religious items.
A Training Day for Evangelizing at the Tri-State Fair is scheduled Saturday, Aug. 23 from 9:00am to 12:30pm in the Reception Room at St. Mary’s Cathedral, 1200 South Washington.
The training day is part of preparations to organize the Catholic booth at the Tri-State Fair, set for Friday, Sept. 12 through Saturday, Sept. 20, according to St. Mary’s Cathedral parishioner Cindy Cox, who will coordinate the training session.
“We encourage every parish in the Diocese of Amarillo to participate and help with our booth at the Tri-State Fair in September,” said Cox. “This is a great opportunity to share your faith with those outside the Church. It would be good to have at least two persons, if possible, from every parish in our diocese to participate at the fair.
“Each year the diocese provides hundreds of free religious items at the fair, including Bibles. Five dollars will purchase a Bible for someone to receive. Those who would like to donate to help purchase Bibles and other religious items are asked to make checks payable to the Diocese of Amarillo and send your donation to the Top of Texas Catholic Superstore, 2500 S. Coulter, Suite 110, Amarillo, 79106. Donations may also be dropped off at the store.”
The deadline to register for the training session is Wednesday, Aug. 20. Lunch will be served, so registering is encouraged, so that there will be plenty of food for all in attendance. For more information on the Aug. 23 training session, contact Cox at 672-3105 or via email, CKcox59@suddenlink.net.
Those planning to attend will be asked to leave their name, email address and phone number to confirm attendance at the training session.
