IMPORTANT UPDATE:
St. Athanasius Irish Fest 2020 CANCELED


March 11, 2020
St. Athanasius Parents & Parishioners,

After careful consideration, Father Hernan and I have consulted with the Chairs of the Development Committee and Irishfest and determined that, in light of the continually evolving situation with coronavirus, we feel it prudent to cancel this Saturday's event. While we prefer to merely postpone the event, given the continual developments we can not guarantee the feasibility of a date at this time. 
We did not approach this lightly, and we are very appreciative of all of the work of the Irishfest committee, particularly Ernie Singh and Monica Robertson. Though we were in contact with the Evanston Health Department and they did not recommend we cancel the event at this time, we feel that this situation is rapidly developing. It is important that our community knows our commitment first and foremost is to the health and safety of our students, families, and parishioners. 

If you purchased tickets through Give Central, your payment will be refunded. We are disappointed to cancel this much anticipated community event, but prefer to err on the side of caution when opening the school building to large numbers of visitors and guests at this time. 

Thank you,
Mrs. Carol McClay
Principal

Father Hernan
Pastor
