2015 Annual Parish Feast Day Celebration
This year the Parish of Our Lady Help of Christians celebrated our annual Feast Day on Sunday, May 17th. (The actual Feast Day of May 24th fell during Memorial Day weekend, therefore, it was decided at the Parish Pastoral Council meeting to reschedule the event.) Keeping with tradition, children who received their First Holy Communion during May participated in the crowning of Mary in the church, after the 12:30 p.m. Mass. Spectacular weather provided the perfect setting for fun, food and fellowship. Volunteers helped with the raffling of many donated gift baskets as well as a 50/50 raffle. Children were well entertained with a magic show, face painting, cotton candy and pizza. Everyone was invited to “feast” on hamburgers, hot dogs and salads; beer, soda, wine, juice or water; and cake, cookies and snacks.
Our annual celebration affords a golden opportunity to mingle and meet with fellow parishioners, and to forge new friendships in a spirit of inclusiveness and unity. -Greg Hauck
