Over the weekend of June 9th through 11th, members of the parish enjoyed a weekend away at Our Lady of Kazan church in Russian River! The weekend was filled with fellowship through food, drink, games, and sun! Parishoners spent Saturday hiking, wine tasting, going to the beach, or just relaxing on the church property. The campout was a success, and we hope we can have an even larger group next year!
