Waskom’s Catholic Church and congregation filled the church, parking lot and grounds, celebrating the Church’s 1st Annual Picnic for the community. Festivities began at 1:00 PM and continued until 5:00 PM, with invitations extended to other churches and communities throughout the area.
The sunshine brought out the grills, with hamburgers and hot dogs. Waskom’s Lions Club and United Help of Waskom donated sweet treats to the already sizeable spread of desserts and dishes.
Parishioner of the church, Lori Hughes, was excited about the launching of this first annual picnic and related activities for the Waskom community.
St. Lawrence’s Rev. Bernard Boteju said, “We are excited to start this event and are looking forward to bringing the people together.”
