Despite the weather we had a great turnout for the 2017 Bicycle Blessing. Click the picture to see all of the photos.
Parish BBQ -- all welcomed!
Gathering on the church yard, Sunday, June 4 After the 10:00 am Mass
Many of you may recall our 2016 Summer Barbecue. Scott Cartland and his father manned the grill to our gustative delight and Michelle Mobley delighted us with the decor and music and tables. This gathering is important for at least three reasons: 1.) It brings Jesus joy. 2.) Fellowship following the Mass is an important expression of the spiritual gifts that we receive (and, in a different setting, fellowship can have a special quality). 3.) We have invited the Blessing of Bicycle participants.
We have a small core team ready to go, but are in need of more people. The BBQ meat will be outsourced this year. Parishioners (YOU) will provide side dishes: potato salad, baked beans, coleslaw, etc., and desserts (left to your creativity).
Sign-up this Sunday (May 28th) at the Information Table in the Undercroft or call the parish office.
Grounds Work Day
In preparation of the parish BBQ, a workday is planned for Saturday, June 3 at 9:00 am, or as soon as you can get here. Grab you gardening tools and gloves and join us at the St. Francis chapel entrance for a couple of hours or weeding, pruning, and general clean-up. We want the grounds to be an inviting setting for the parish BBQ.
