Parish Picnic

On Sunday, June 7th, St. Joseph’s Parish and St. Joseph’s Vietnamese Community are coming together to Worship and to enjoy our Annual Picnic.  This is going to be a great day filled with memorable ceremonies and fun activities. A bilingual Mass will be held outdoors at 11:30 am.  On this Sunday, we will celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi with a traditional procession.  In addition, there will be a dedication of our New Holy Family Memorial Shrine.  Plan on attending the 11:30 Mass so you don’t miss out on these special events.


The Annual Picnic will be directly after Mass.  We will have all the traditional cook-out/picnic fare.  You can look forward to hamburgers, hotdogs, baked beans, potato salad, and coleslaw.  Everyone is encouraged to bring a favorite dessert to share, so there will be plenty of sweet treats in which to indulge.   Sit in the shade and chat with your friends, or get up and play some corn hole.  Kids will have a blast jumping in the bounce house, playing water balloon games, and drawing with side walk chalk.  We will even have door prizes!  There will be something everyone will enjoy, so come and join in the celebration!
