Annual Church Picnic
Early each summer we conclude our program year with a parish picnic – lots of good food, fellowship and games. This event is sponsored by the Fellowship Commission, but gather volunteers from throughout the congregation.
On the Sunday closest to the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi (October 4), we have a Blessing of Pets. The clergy bless each animal present – everything from dogs and cats, fish and lizards, rabbits and horses, to stuffed animals.
Shrove Tuesday Mardi Gras Celebration
Every other year the parish indulges in a bit of pre-Lenten frolic complete with food, face painting, and a talent show – some acts serious, some less so. All acts are welcome and enthusiastically received!
Our parish family enjoys being together, whether to celebrate baptisms and confirmation, ordinations, or other special events. We sometimes gather for an informal potluck, movie, or ballgame whenever the spirit moves us to gather for food and fun.
