MANSFIELD -- The Oasis of Love Church will be hosting its fifth annual block party on Saturday, July 24 from noon to 3 p.m.
"We are a church right in the heart of the north end and our event is free every year to the public," pastor Raymond Cochran Jr. said. "We provide children with back packs and school supplies every summer.
"We also provide free food and entertainment. It’s our way of giving back to those in need while also bringing the community together."
This year the church is honoring its late Pastor, Dr. Walter Jordan II, who founded the block party six years ago.
