Catholic Family Fest

Hey folks,

Do you have plans for your family for Memorial Day weekend?  If not, I've got an incredible opportunity for you guys to have some good old-fashioned Catholic family fun.  The Catholic Family Fest will be Friday, May 22 - Sunday, May 24, at Camp Tekakwitha in Springville (just east of Birmingham).  There will be camping, hiking, canoeing, bonfires, family games, outdoor Mass and more.  Singer Kara Klein will be providing music throughout the weekend.  Come for the weekend (bring your tents), or just come for the day on Saturday.  

This is an opportunity to get your kids outside, for walks in the woods, playing games and praying together as a family, and much more.  For more details about the weekend - activities, what to bring, meal plans, directions, and so on - and to register, please go to:

Camp Tekakwitha has undergone a beautiful renovation in the last couple of years and is an incredible place for a Catholic family event just such as this.  Please think about joining us.  But, you need to register by the end of the day on Friday, May 8th, so talk it over with your spouse tonight and go online to register.

If you need more information than what is on the website, or have any questions, please call Deacon Patrick or Patrice Lappert: 256-303-5357, or email them:

I look forward to seeing you there!

God bless!
