In order to lessen the amount of plastic to be recycled, we encourage (not require, but simply encourage) picnickers to bring your own reusable beverage containers, preferably wide-mouth bicycle water bottles or travel mugs, so you can serve yourself the ice and beverages that will be provided at the parish picnic. There will, of course, be cups provided at the picnic for those who don't have a beverage container with them.
Spots are still available for a special evening with Fr. Matt Malone (editor in chief of America magazine) in person and Fr. Jim Martin (New York Times best selling author) via Skype for a conversation about Pope Francis's call for a more just world through social thought and action. The floor will be opened to questions and comments from attendees. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served at 6pm, and conversation will begin at 7pm.
