St. Luke Family Picnic
The parish family of St. Luke Catholic Church will be having their annual family picnic this Sunday, August 28th. This time of food, fellowship and fun will begin with the celebration of Holy Mass at 12:00 p.m. The Church will provide the meat and beverage. You are asked to bring your favorite dish and place setting. Musical entertainment will be provided by Paul and Joan Eisert (Fire and Ice). A magician has been hired, at the request of some parishioners, who claims he can make the Pastor disappear! Bingo will also be played for those who feel lucky. The picnic will be held at the pavilion. In case of inclement weather all festivities will be held in the parish hall.
For more information call Father John Neff at 814/563-4432.
