A Thanksgiving to Truly Give Thanks

A Thanksgiving dinner was served by the Parish House members and staff for all their families on November 15th. Young adults, their parents and VoA team members gave thanks for the engaging new life at the Parish House. One resident said it all, “I love the Parish House.”


Happy Halloween!

The Parish House celebrated All Hallow’s Eve in style. Residents and staff joined in the fun of the holiday by cooking and feasting on unusually spooky concoctions, dressing in costumes, and walking in the festive neighborhood of Bar Harbor.
