144th Clarksville Picnic

We are excited to let you know the the 144th Clarksville Picnic is returning. We plan to get back to the full-scale picnic but need your help and leadership to make it happen. Our parish has the longest running picnic in the state of Maryland, a parish and community event we hope to continue but what the picnic looks like in 2022 depends upon you!

Purchase 50/50 Raffle Tickets

Volunteer Sign-Up is Open.

We need your help to make our picnic successful, please follow the link to volunteer now. Fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities for families with children of all ages to volunteer!  For example, young children, with an adult, can help at a game. Older children can serve drinks and deliver meals under the Dinner Tent. If you have free time during the days leading up to the picnic (even a few hours) the White Elephant is a great place to help out and meet other parishioners.  We have something for everyone!  Volunteer questions can be sent to picnicvolunteers@stlouisparish.org.

The picnic depends upon you for it to continue. We ask that your pray for motivation, consider keeping the tradition alive for your children and the community, ask a long-term parishioner about their memories and experiences, and take some quiet time to hear the call to serve in a leadership position with the picnic.

Please contact picnic@stlouisparish.org if you are interested in leadership or volunteering.
