Rosary on The River



SUNDAY, JUNE 25, 2017

This is a picture of the actual ship, The “Clinton Friendship” that will be taking St. Thecla Parishioners and family and friends for an afternoon cruise down the river to Lake Saint Clair and back.   This is a 3 hour boat ride which includes a mouthwatering Buffet Lunch on board!   There’s also a Cash Bar available during the whole trip.

There are no ‘Reserved’ Seats.   You have your choice of top or lower deck for seating.   (Sorry, no elevators)!   If you are going with a group, 2 or 3 of your party should get there when they start aboard, (that’s 11:30 a.m.), and select your own area and hold it until your party is there.

A Rosary Committee has been formed for this occasion and a Rosary will be said, probably immediately after lunch, and will be amplified throughout the ship, so everyone can participate.   This will NOT be an hour long service with a homily …   Just the Rosary for approximately 15 minutes or so.

I looked it up – – The last time we took this trip was 2005!   That’s 12 years ago!!   Fr. Gary was our Pastor at the time.   This cruise was so popular that when we first started it in 2003, we did it for three consecutive years!!   If we get the response that I expect, we might have to reschedule for next year.

Admission is:   Adults – $25.00,   seniors (Age 60 and over) – $20.00,   Children (5 to 12 years old) – $15.00,   Children (Under 5 years old) – “FREE”   Boarding is 11:30 a.m., and Return at 3:00 p.m. ANCHORS AWHEIGH!!!

Tickets are being sold after Masses or in the parish office.
