The 2018 Parish Picnic celebrating our 150th Parish Anniversary was a huge success August 26 with over 800 people attending and enjoying music, food and fun. Our own parish Band entertained throughout the afternoon with live music, the KC #11205 provided us with a delicious picnic lunch, there were history displays of the church and school inside the gym as well as over 30 displays of parish and community organizations. The City of Cape Girardeau declared it "Cathedral of St. Mary of the Annunciation Day" and Bishop Edward Rice presented Pastor Allan Saunders with an Apostolic Blessing for the Cathedral.
The youth played games and the middle and high school youth held a water slide kick ball game on the green space. Tours of the church and school were given. It was a wonderful day to be shared by everyone. Thank you to everyone who came, enjoyed, worked, volunteered and had fun!
