Location: Mineral Springs Picnic Area
(click for directions)

Everyone is invited!!

We will have a community Mass at 11am followed by food and games. Note, there will NOT be a 10am Mass at Newman that weekend because we will be bringing our Christ light to Tilden with Mass and fun.

Newman will provide the main dish; just bring sides, salad or dessert to share and bring drinks. There is no running water at the grounds. Also bring chairs and canopy (if you have one).

Please RSVP so we can get an approximate headcount to have enough food.

Also sign up for a committee at Newman to help make this community event amazing!!
