ST. MATTHEW'S PARISH IN VOORHEESVILLE celebrated its patron saint's feast day with a "sports picnic." Parishioners were invited to wear sports uniforms or their favorite team shirt; there were games and a sports-based raffle.

Here, parishioners eat lunch and chat after Mass; five-year-old Madeline Taylor plays T-ball; Stephan Doolin tosses a football; and five-year-old Abigail Thompson picks out a cupcake. For more photos, see The Evangelist's print edition. (Nate Whitchurch photos)
