Parish Life

The annual parish picnic was held at Rosensteel Knights of Columbus on Sunday, Sept. 14. Grilled hamburgers and hotdogs were served. Parishioners also brought their specialty dishes to share. Fr. Ettore Ferrario welcomed guests and announced the 50-50 raffle to raise funds for the religious education program. Tom Kelly emceed while The Lord is My Shepherd Prayer Group provided DJ services and attendees including Fr. Roberto Amoruso displayed their dance moves . Additional entertainment was provided by a guest accordion player. Children competed in the sack race and took turns at hitting the piñata until it was broken. Candy fell to the ground and children scrambled to gather the candy. There was a short break for people to enjoy some ice cream and sing happy birthday to Fr. Josè's visitor from Portugal, Fr. João Seabra.  The 50-50 raffle winner Debbie Kelly generously donated her prize to the church.  The last fun event of the day was the water balloon toss contest which was won by two youth group members. Photos
