We do need help to complete our menu and are grateful for the parishioners who have already turned in their flyers - thank you!!

But we do have a ways to go and here is how you can help:
  • If you can help with a main dish you can drop off the hot dogs, frozen 1/4 pound hamburgers and buns to the office a couple of days before the picnic.
  • If you plan to bring a side dish or dessert, you can bring it the day of the picnic - we still need to know.
  • If you plan to donate beverages or a paper good donation, you can bring it to the office during the week.
For planning purposes, please fill out one of the flyers located by the entrances of church or contact the office.
Tickets are on sale this weekend -
July 6th & 7th!
