This Sunday is the 82nd Annual Church Picnic at the parish of St. Michael in Southbridge. This picnic is by far the best in town. Of course I have to say that as I am the priest here so I am little biased. People will be coming to the church from far and wide. The church office has received calls from all over New England. It seems that we have been put on some sort of Folk Dance Mailing list and all the folk dancers will be coming. Let’s hope it is not too hot!
Many people are involved in the set up and clean up of this event. It does not happen by itself although to some it would seem so. I have to say a big thank you to Fr. Greg from St. Spyridon’s in Worcester. Fr. Greg came out today and gave us a hand doing some of the grunt work. Fr. Greg and I are also school chums from seminary and have begun a friendship that I hope will last many years.
I hope some of you will be able to drop by on Sunday for some Lamb, music, and fun.
