Not quite Hobbiton

St. Anthony of Padua parish held its annual parish picnic this past weekend. Hundreds of people returned home for the festivities and a good time seems to have been had by all in attendance.

I spent most of Satuday evening and Sunday at the picnic visiting with parishioners and making myself seen at all corners of the picnic (at least I think I did). That's always the trick with events like this. People expect the priest to be around but it's hard to be present for 4,000 parishioners.

At any rate, I did what I could and enjoyed my time at the picnic. I'm looking forward already to next year's picnic.
