Tentative times of shuttle rides are planned from approximately 9:30am before Mass to 3:30pm.

Volunteers: Please see the backside of this sheet to get an idea where volunteer help is needed. We can’t hold our fantastic parish picnic without many volunteers donating their time and talents! A Sign-up Genius will be available to sign up to volunteer. The earlier you sign up, the more likely you are able to get the area and shift you desire. Other options would be to fill out your desired info on the enclosed yellow Donation card or you may call the parish office at 864-2550 with your desired area and shift and we will do our best to place you in that spot.

Thank you for your support and interest in making this a great event!!
