BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Looking for that perfect pumpkin for your Halloween Jack-o-Laterns? Well, there's a place in Biloxi that might be able to help you.

A shipment of pumpkins large and small arrived at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Woolmarket on Sunday. Church officials say all the proceeds go to the church's Life Teen organization.

The teens use the money to pay for trips, conventions and retreats throughout the year.

The pumpkin patch is on Woolmarket Road and is open seven days a week from 10 am to 6 pm until October 30th.
