Our July Meeting - A Potluck Picnic


Sunday, July 18 at 12:00 p.m. at El Dorado Park

Dear Friends,

Please join us Sunday, July 18th at noon for a potluck to celebrate summer. Comunidad members will gather at El Dorado Park, the South/East conner of Willow & N. Studebaker Road. There is parking on Studebaker Road as well as in the parking lot which is accessible from Los Arcos Street; go to the very end of the parking lot. Please look for the WELCOME HOME CATHOLICS and HOLY SPIRT banners. Since we are still testing the waters for post-COVID gatherings, everyone is encouraged to bring their own food and drink picnic favorites. Members will try to “secure” picnic tables earlier in the day, but bringing your own blanket and/or chairs is highly recommended. We hope to see you all there for a wonderful afternoon of fellowship.
