With all the commotion in our world these days and this past year, we could all use a little more joy. Yes? Who would turn away from that? Hopefully not many. Hopefully not you. Join us on August 21 & 22 in a parish & community Festival of JOY. Let’s celebrate being together — laughing, eating, playing, and praising! 

Give us a like (on Facebook) if you hope to be there in August and/or if you’ll help in some way. That would bring us JOY today, right here, right now. ????????????
