Saint Simon Parish Mass on the Grass
Parish Picnic/PFO Carnival
Mass on the grass! The Men's Club is grilling, bands will be palying, we will have free games, bounce houses, and a cupcake walk provide by PFO. Make sure you bring blankets and chairs to enjoy Mass at 4.30. The Picnic will follow. You do not need to register if you are planning on just going to Mass or plan on doing Mass and PFO Carnival. There is not a fee for the PFO Carnival because the school's PFO provides the bounce houses and games. However, if you plan on eating you must pre-register your family.

High School North Deanery Concert
with PJ Anderson
We are excited to announce that singer-songwriter PJ Anderson will be performing at the Saint Simon Youth Center kicking off the North Deanery High School youth ministry program. All high school students are invited to this fantastic concert on
August 19 from 5-8pm at the St. Simon youth center.
PJ travels the country inspiring youth through his prayerful form of worship and music. His recent album, Mercy, Mercy debuted at #7 on iTunes Christian/Gospel Charts. Most notably, PJ has led music at the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) in 2017, 2015 & 2013 as well as leading worship at Catholic Heart Work Camp for the past six summers. He headlined the Youth Rally and Mass For Life at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC for 30,000 youth in 2016 and also played at World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland, where 3 million Catholic and Christian youth joined with Pope Francis to grow in faith. We will have food for sale and in-kind donations appreciated.
