WINSLOW — Parish groups plan to host a free event that aims to gather parishioners and community members from Waterville, Winslow and beyond for food, music and relaxation on Sunday, Sept. 18.

The Taste of Corpus Christi Parish event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the St. John Church campus on Monument Street. Different parish groups will sponsor food booths that will be organized so people can walk from booth to booth. Menu items include baked beans, hot dogs, chili, watermelon and desserts.

A variety of children’s activities also will be offered, and all are welcome to attend, according to a news release from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland.

Prior to the event, an outdoor Mass will be held at the St. John grotto, also located on the St. John Church campus. Participants in the Mass are asked to bring their own chairs.

The event has grown and developed over the years, stemming from an initial parish celebration, Parish Fun Day, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Corpus Christi Parish in 2017.

For more information, call the parish at 207-872-2281.
