Parish Picnic

Time to Eat

Have I ever mentioned that we belong to an awesome parish? The Mass is focused on Christ, our pastor and assistant pastor care about our souls, there are lots of children, and we have fun together. 

Three-Legged Race

On the Feast of the Nativity of Mary, our parish hosted its annual picnic. My children had a great time participating in the games and playing with their friends. I enjoyed watching them.

Elizabeth and her friend participated in their first three-legged race.

Our assistant pastor organized a game of tug of war between the altar boys.

Although this wasn't mentioned and it was not necessarily the intent of the picnic, it proved to be a great end of summer parish get together and kick off for our new school year.

I hope that everyone's school year is off to a great start!

    God bless,
