Route20Catholic Float at July 4 Parade!
Deacon Paul is inviting all parishioners from our four parish communities to help decorate the Route20Catholic Float for the annual July 4th Parade in Hamilton. All are invited to attend the decorating party at Deacon Paul’s house on Sunday, July 3 at 5:30 PM. There will be food and drink for all who attend as well as plenty of supplies to decorate the float. The Route20Catholic youth group is especially invited to ride the float in the parade on July 4th. Please arrive at the Route20Catholic float on July 4th on Wings Way next to the Hamilton Airport no later than 10:30am, if you plan on riding on the float. Please come out as we make this great sign of our Catholic presence in our wider community. If you have any questions, please reach out to Deacon Paul at dcpaullehmann@gmail.com.
