The public is invited to join cathedral parishioners for an afternoon of food and games.

Proceeds from the Friar’s Fest will go to fund the education of Western Dominican novices and student brothers. Funds will also go to a trust fund for elderly and infirm Dominican friars, and to retire the debt on the purchase and renovation of the campus for the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, Calif.
