(Updated) Mass In the Grass & Parish Picnic – 9/10

This year as well as celebrating Mass in the Grass and the parish picnic we will be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Fr. Joe’s Ordination.

Join us on Sunday, September 10 at 11am for Mass in the Grass. Mass will be held outside so bring your lawn chairs or blankets, sunglasses and hats. Some tents for shaded seating will be provided. Overflow parking will be available at Waldon Middle School and a shuttle will be provided from church to the school. The 9:00am Mass will be held in church.

New this year! Our Picnic Committee has been hard at work to offer the best picnic ever! ALL food and drinks will be provided! We will have hotdogs, roasted corn, watermelon, coleslaw, baked beans, chips and ice cream! Water and lemonade will be provided, please bring a reusable cup/bottle for your beverage or another beverage of your choice.

The committee has also added several new activities for kids of all ages! We have hired a petting zoo with pony rides, as well as a photo booth, face painting, a trackless train and a clown making balloon art!

In celebration of Fr. Joe’s anniversary there will also be special music provided for all to enjoy throughout the entire picnic.

Many volunteers are needed for the success of this event. Assistance is needed with set up for the choir and musicians. In addition volunteers are needed for parking, overall preparations, kid’s activities, kitchen help and kitchen clean up. To volunteer, sign up in the vestibule after Masses or contact Karen S. in the parish office. Sign up sheets are also available in the vestibule for all Liturgical Ministries.

Please mark your calendars and make Fr. Joe’s Anniversary, Mass in the Grass and the Parish Picnic the best ever!
