On July 17th the Tri Parish’s of St. Mary’s, St. Anthony’s and Assumption hosted a Church picnic at the Cottonwood City park. The festivities began with a wonderful meal of hamburgers, hot dogs, salads, and any kind of desert you could imagine. As everyone gathered together at table, community emerged and the definition of Eucharist took on real meaning. Smiles, laughter, sharing, stories, games, food, water fights, and love were all reflected in our Church family. We are so grateful for this blessed day, and thank all of you for attending; you made this day so special. And please know, if you were unable to attend this year, we definitely missed you and hope you can join us next year. A Church gathered as community, opens the door to new opportunities, creates life, and brings hope for the future! Isn’t it amazing what a little time, sun, and fun can do?
