Parish picnic kicks off year

By Cory Head
FLOWOOD – Sunday Sept. 30, St. Paul Parish celebrated the opening of a new religious education and Youth cycle with a parish Back-to-School Picnic. The gathering started after a 10:30 a.m. Mass on the hill behind the church and was sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.

During the event, the Religious Education Program sponsored a raffle to raise money to provide school supplies for students at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Forest. Families enjoyed lunch and fun games for the family.
