Our annual picnic was also the celebration of the conclusion of our 30th Anniversary as a church. The day started with Mass at 11am celebrated by Bishop Serratelli. After Mass the Bishop met with the Ignite Steering Committee to hear about the progress we have made in our first year. He was very interested in the new programs we started like the Young Parents Ministry and how the program supports the Youth Ministry.
The picnic immediately followed the mass on our church grounds.Thanks to the Liturgy Committee and the Prayer & Worship Pillar whole planned the liturgy with Frs Stan & Hernan and to all the ministries who served to make the Mass so special. Also thanks to the Picnic Committee who oversaw all the festivities from set-up of the tables and chairs under the tent through clean-up. The Youth Group and Confirmation Candidates had many new games this year that were enjoyed by all ages. Also thanks to our cooks who fed us, to Bob our own DJ who provided lots of good music and emceed the event. Finally, thanks to our parishioners for coming out to join the celebration!
Not only were our current parishioners on hand to celebrate, but many of our founding families who have since moved out of the area, came back to celebrate. This was there dream over 30 years ago, the one they worked so hard to make a reality. We thank them for building us so a beautiful place to worship, to gather, to call home.
