Last Sunday, we had our 1st annual picnic in honor of our patron, St. Jane Frances. Her feast day is August 12th. At each Mass, I mention her in the Eucharistic Prayer. It is a reminder that we have a friend in a very high place, and we should invoke her intercession on behalf of the parish and we parishioners.
The picnic was a very nice affair with a good attendance, good food, a bouncy house, some games, snowballs, and a nice relaxing time that helped people get to know one another. I appreciate all our parishioners who worked to make the picnic such a success. It was a big hit with all who attended, and we are already making plans for next year.
