St. Charles Carnival Cancelled, But Raffle Continues

Recently, Fr. John Carlin, Pastor of my Parish, St. Charles Borromeo, informed me that our summer carnival was being canceled due to the pandemic. In fact, the only other time the carnival has been canceled since 1932 was during World War II! Although this is sad news for our Parish and the community at-large, it was the right thing to do to keep people safe. The St. Charles carnival is one of Parma’s premier family events and raises needed funds for the Parish. As a result, the carnival raffle will continue this summer.

If you are interested in purchasing tickets, please stop by the Parish office at 5891 Ridge Road or call 440-884-3030.  Tickets cost $5.00 apiece. The grand prize is a 2020 GMC Terrain courtesy of Parma’s own Axelrod GMC-Buick. Second prize is a $4,500 roof from Second to None Roofing. Finally, third prize is $3,500 in gift cards of your choice or cash.  The drawing will take place Sunday, August 16. To learn more visit
