Picnic in Williamstown on Father's Day Weekend

A Sunny Picnic in Williamstown, NJ


A break in the unusual series of summer rain storms gave the parishioners of Sts. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church in Williamstown, NJ a much needed break to take some time and break bread at the parish’s first Family Potluck Day on June 15, 2013.   The cool weather and shady picnic grove provided a great place for parishioners and family to sit down and enjoy some good food and fellowship after the Saturday, 4:00 pm Divine Liturgy.  25 parishioners and family members came by to worship and to bring various food items and drink to share with each other, while Father Paul worked the grill cooking hamburgers and hot dogs for everyone.  Good food, good company, good weather, and of course, the presence of the Holy Spirit, made for a fantastic time for everyone to get to know each other and also to bring back family members who have been away from the tiny, but steadily re-growing, community of Sts. Peter and Paul parish.
