Feast of St. Jane Frances de Chantal

Dear Parishioners,

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.
