ROSSFORD – With humble beginnings, a group of seven accordionists, all parishioners of All Saints
Catholic Church, will perform at the Polka Mass at 4 p.m. Saturday at the church, 628 Lime City Road,
The special Mass is part of the All Saints Parish Festival this weekend.
The group evolved from one Father Kent Kaufman’s interest in learning the accordion.
The pastor took lessons from a parishioner and is joined by others ranging from college-age to seniors.
At the Mass they will be accompanied by parishioners on the clarinet, drums and piano. The Mass will
include Polish and Slovak songs as well as traditional church songs with Polka melodies.
In addition to the Mass, the festival will include serving more than 10,000 homemade pierogies; 3,500
pigs-in-a-blanket; 3,500 kolaczki, which are fruit-filled cookies; hundreds of pounds of kielbasa,
funnel cakes, ice cream and Mexican food.
Entertainment will include Touch of Brass and Bonkers on Friday and Randy Krajewski/Bandinov and Sundelay
The festival also include bingo, children’s games, raffles, a teen game tent and barbecue chicken dinners
Hours are from 5 to 11:30 p.m. both Friday and Saturday. Dinners served from 5 to 8 p.m.
