Sunday Traditions

Every year, our parish outdoor Mass and parish picnic falls on the same day 
as the Cub Scout kick-off pack meeting.
Which means that we spend all day hanging out with our favorite people.
First Stop:  Outdoor Celebration of the Holy Mass.

The highlight of our day was sharing the Holy Eucharist, as Christ commanded us: 

Before he was given up to death, a death he freely accepted, he took bread and gave you thanks, He broke the bread, gave it to his disciples, and said: 

Take this, all of you, and eat it; this is my body which will be given up for you.

When the supper was ended, he took the cup. Again he gave you thanks and praise, gave the cup to his disciples, and said: 
Take this, all of you, and drink from it; this is the cup of my blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant. It will be shed for you and for all so that sins may be forgiven. 
Do this in memory of me.

Time for food!

Joseph, Jonah, and Peter anchor their team on the tug-o-war.
They were defeated, but gave a valiant attempt.
