Your annual Jamaica is the main and largest fundraiser of the year.  This event brings together families from all over Austin.  As the neighborhood surrounding our parish continues to grow and become more diverse, we strive to create an event where everyone from all parts of the city feel welcomed.  The Jamaica is a little bit of work but a lot of fun!  Come and join us by volunteering or donating a prize.  Please review below areas of the Jamaica and see which one interest you.  Then contact that Sub Committee Chairperson and tell them you are interested, they would love to tell you about their booth and welcome you.
