Our Parish Picnic will be held on Saturday, June 9, 2018. This wonderful event is an opportunity for our community to come together for family fun with a parade, rides, games, food and music. Additionally, the picnic is an important fundraiser for the parish contributing funds to support parish and school operations. The Picnic is not sponsored by a specific parish organization but is coordinated by a committee of volunteers that lead different aspects of the event.

At this time, the committee has a number of opportunities for leadership positions. Please consider an opportunity to contribute in a big way to your parish community. If you are interested or have questions about the roles, contact Gene Gilstrap (Picnic Chair) at ggistrap@ymail.com. Thank you!
