You will find a picnic atmosphere with a new variety of food offerings. Start off by stopping in the church hall after morning Mass for a pancake breakfast and a visit to the book sale. The fun continues outside at noon with live music provided by talented parishioners of all ages, as well as kids’ games, bingo, silent auction, bake sale, raffle, and food and beverages all day. There’s plenty of parking, too. Best of all, you’ll have a chance to spend a pleasant afternoon visiting with fellow parishioners or neighborhood friends. All are welcome! We’ll also be making a special effort to renew old acquaintances with members of our extended parish family. So plan right now to join us on Sunday, Aug. 10.
