Annual Parish Picnic
This year's parish picnic is Sunday, September 13, on the parish grounds. Join us for the 12 noon bilingual Mass followed by picnic festivities from 1-5 pm. There will be no 11:15 am or 1:00 pm Mass on picnic Sunday. The parish will provide hot dogs, hamburgers, BBQ chicken tenders, fried fish, and cold drinks. We kindly request that everyone who plans to attend bring a salad, side dish or dessert (enough to feed 8 people). There will be sign-up sheets at the back of the church beginning soon for those who wish to volunteer to this much awaited yearly event. Bernadette Lozano, Picnic Chair: 571-269-2280, firstname.lastname@example.org.
