Mother of our Redeemer (MOR) Catholic Church and School are celebrating their annual festival this weekend. The festival runs Thursday, February 6 through Sunday, February 9. Festival hours for Thursday and Friday are from 6 to 11 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
This is the church's primary fundraiser which helps MOR service the Catholic community across Northwest Miami-Dade County.
Pastor Fr. Jimmy Acevedo said, “We hope everyone will come to enjoy the carnival and the delicious food, lots of food! We have the largest offerings of foods from all over Latin America and the Carribean.”
Ana Casariego, school principal, together with the teaching staff and parents will run the school booth which will offer barbecue ribs and french fries.
“It will be exciting to meet and serve the people of our church, school and neighboring communities,” said Casariego.
MOR church has been serving the community for 25 years and expanded nine years ago by opening its school to serve families with elementary and middle school children from Pre-K to 8th grade with an enriched catholic education.
The school, known as a "Small School with a Big Heart" is now accepting new student applications for the 2014-2015 school year. The church and school are located at 8445 N.W. 186 Street. To contact the church, call 305-829-6141. To contact the school, call 305-829-3988.
