Every family is also invited to whatever beverage they would like along with them as well. The registration from is available in the back of both churches and an auto-fill form is available on our website.
This year, Leo Francis will be providing music and entertainment, Miss Wendee will be face painting and we will have a blow up slide available for the kiddos.
The price of the ticket is $10.00 per adult and as Fr. Paul says - "KIDS EAT FREE!"
You do not have to purchase a ticket to attend the Mass and we would love to see you there!
We have certainly been busy here in our Parishes these past few weeks! Fr. Paul has been baptizing babies and children during our weekend Masses, Weddings at Sacred Heart and yesterday was our annual Fr. Jack Gentleman Memorial Tuck's Point Clergy Cookout honoring our retired priests and our friends from Regina Cleri. Thank you to the Knights of Columbus for supplying our caterer 7 Central, who created a wonderful spread with Steak Tips, Chicken, Hamburgers and of course, Hot Dogs. The setting was perfect and a great time was had by all who attended. Here are a few photos from the day.
