With the Covid restrictions now lifted for parish functions, we will do what we can to plan for our regular parish events. Please be patient with me as I learn what those events are and what all is involved with each one!
You may have heard me say that summer is my favorite time of year. I love the warm weather, the long days, and all the chances to get together with parishioners, family, and friends. For this reason, I find it very timely that the Covid restrictions are being lifted before summer. As such, I am happy to announce that we will be having our annual summer “open house” cookout at the rectory on July 11, after the 10:30 Mass. Everyone is welcome to attend this event. It will be a casual gathering and will be a great opportunity for us to gather as a parish family for the first time outside of Mass in over a year. I hope you are looking forward to this as much as I am!
I am also very glad to share that we will once again be able to do funeral luncheons. We are hoping to make this happen as we have in the past, but this certainly depends on how comfortable each of our funeral lunch team members are with being present at group events. Of course, none of the members of our funeral lunch teams are expected to work the luncheons if they are still taking precautions due to the Covid virus.
We have begun the initial planning for our annual wine-tasting event. At this time, we are looking to do this at the end of August. More updates will be coming with the specific details of the event.
I will provide more updates as we continue to move forward. Know of my prayers for everyone to have a safe and enjoyable summer!
