St. Catherine of Alexandria parish picnic rekindled the spirit of the Olympics with a 5K run, games and fellowship at Lawn Manor Park. Watch the video of the relay races and peruse the photo gallery.
St. Catherine of Alexandria parishioners spent the whole day together on Saturday as they gathered for an invigorating run through Oak Lawn before an afternoon of food, fellowship and fun in Lawn Manor Park. The morning started with the parish's Charge On 5K run and walk which was a little early on a Saturday for Patch, but we stopped by Lawn Manor Park to catch parish children's relay races in the afternoon.

Do you have pictures from St. Catherine's parish picnic? Don't keep them imprisioned in your mobile phones. Share them on Patch.
