St. Benedict's Day
July 16, after the 10:30 service
This year’s St. Benedict’s Day celebration is on July 16! To celebrate our patron saint’s feast day, food and fellowship await ― all under the big tent. The menu will include grilled hotdogs and beef and vegetarian hamburgers, along with sides, chips, desserts and beverages. Children’s activities will include a bounce house, face painting and balloon animals, and there will be a water balloon toss, giant Jenga and cornhole for everyone. We’ll only have one worship service that day, so be sure to join us after the 10:30 a.m. service. Attire is hot-weather picnic casual. Bring a smiling face, as a diocesan photographer will join us that day to capture some images of our common life!
9:30: Help assemble lunches for the Church of the Common Ground (Parish Hall)
10:30: ONE worship service, all together: Holy Eucharist with Holy Baptisms
Following Worship: Parish cookout and fellowship!
